Jay McCarroll: Eleven Minutes
It's been two long years since the sharp-witted Jay McCarroll was dubbed "the next great American designer" on season one of reality television's "Project Runway," and he's anxious to finally show his first line of clothing. The feature documentary, "Eleven Minutes," chronicles his year-long journey designing and preparing his first independent runway show for New York's Fashion Week in Bryant Park and the subsequent selling of his line to stores.

The result is an in-depth, painfully raw and humorous exploration of the creative process and the constant conflict of balancing commerce with art, fame with talent and reality-TV with actual reality.

Starring Kelly Cutrone, Nancy Kane, Carson Kressley, Jason Low, Jay McCarroll

Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail
This time America's favorite irreverent, pistol-packin' grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom...Hallelujer!

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe (TYLER PERRY) couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune. But Madea's eccentric family members the Browns (DAVID and TAMALA MANN) rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support.

Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle - defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) - and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a "motherly" way as only Madea can.

Starring Vanessa Ferlito, Tyler Perry, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Keke Palmer, Derek Luke
