Here's another goodie I've been asked to line up. A student group
wants to show a movie that they're calling "30 Days as a Muslim in
America." The closest thing I've found so far is an episode of Morgan
Spurling's TV series "30 Days," on the FX network. There's a DVD
available from the Fox Store or from Amazon.com, called "30 Days -
Series 1," and one of the episodes on it is called "Muslims and America."

First question - do you think this "Muslims and America" TV episode
is the same thing as the title they asked me to find?

Second question - if we pay $15.98 for a 6-episode DVD, then it must
be a home-use item, and not legit for public performance. What are
the chances that I can get public performance licensing for a showing
of an episode from the FX network? And how would I contact anyone at
FX with the authority to answer such a question?

Thanks for your help.
