CBS Airs 'Deep Throat' Episode of 'Swingtown'

NEW YORK - The latest episode of CBS prime-time drama "Swingtown" featured a storyline about Gerard Damiano's landmark porn film "Deep Throat" - complete with a sympathetic portrayal of "Throat" star Harry Reems.

In the July 4 episode "You Can Go Your Own Way," Susan (Molly Parker) attends a free-speech fundraiser to benefit Reems' legal defense in the famous court battles over "Deep Throat."

Susan is at first disgusted by the idea of a porn star, but changes her mind after reading court documents and realizing the First Amendment issues involved. When Reems shows up to screen the movie at the suburban living-room affair, Susan and others are forced to examine their own sexual mores and their reactions to the "Throat" controversy.

Created by director Alan Poul ("Big Love," HBO's "Rome"), the series "traces two generations of friends and neighbors as they forge intimate connections and explore new freedoms during the culturally transformative decade of the 1970s." See the show's Web site here for more info.
