'Guardian' premiere here to benefit KidsVoice

Saturday, September 01, 2001

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

KidsVoice, formerly known as Legal Aid for Children, will host a free screening of the premiere episode of CBS's new fall series "The Guardian" at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Byham Theater, Downtown.

Doors open at 5:30; seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. An original script from the series, signed by the cast, will be raffled off.

"The Guardian," which premieres on CBS at 9 p.m. Sept. 18, focuses on Nick Fallin (Simon Baker), a high-priced lawyer who is sentenced to community service when he's caught with drugs. Fallin must serve his time working with children's legal services, which does work similar to that of nonprofit child advocacy agency KidsVoice.

"The Guardian" is set in Pittsburgh and was created by Mt. Lebanon native David Hollander. His brother, Scott Hollander, is the executive director of KidsVoice and serves as a technical consultant on the TV show.

After the screening, a KidsVoice fund-raising reception will be at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel. Tickets to the reception are available for a contribution of $100 per person.
