Question: I was wondering when Angels in America will appear on television. It seems like a racy play for network television, especially with strong homosexual issues that make Will &#038 Grace look like Pillow Talk. — Sean, Burke, Va.

Televisionary: It is indeed a racy play for network TV — too racy, in fact, which is why it'll be on HBO when it debuts in December. A six-hour miniseries adapted by Tony Kushner from his acclaimed play, it's directed by Mike Nichols and stars Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson, Mary-Louise Parker, James Cromwell and Jeffrey Wright. I was blown away by the original stage production in New York and am very much looking forward to this take on it.
