Between Dec. 2005-March 2006, Sam Slovick wrote a series of Weekly cover stories on the everyday tragedies and triumphs found on Los Angeles's Skid Row, and now he's used that work as a jumping-off point for a five-part documentary. The short film, which is written and directed by Slovick and sponsored by GOOD Magazine, debuted this week on MySpace TV. "We couldn't be prouder of Sam and the light he's helped shine on this issue," Weekly deputy editor Joe Donnelly says.
