Detroit Free Press:

A few months ago, Mac Kelly, the producer and host of a campy TV show called "Nightmare Sinema," was celebrating just getting one more local cable-access station to let him air his production. Today, Kelly and his friends, who meet weekly at Stage 3 Productions in Warren to write, act in and tape the show, are celebrating the accomplishment of having been picked up by commercial television less than 10 months after launching. The show last month began airing on WMYD-TV (Channel 20, also known as My TV20) at 1 a.m. Saturdays. On April 26, the show will move to midnight...
