We start with an update from Press Play producer Matt Holzman on the Sundance Film Festival, which started last Thursday in Park City, Utah. Then, only state Attorney General Kamala Harris has officially entered the race to replace outgoing Senator Barbara Boxer. Why is the field so small and what does it portend?

And finally, in our weekly television roundup, does the popularity of dark crime shows mean we're in for a gritty pilot season?
