Between December 2005 and March 2006, Sam Slovick did a stunning series of cover stories for the LA Weekly that took readers deep inside the everyday tragedies and triumphs found on Los Angeles's Skid Row. These articles have played an integral role in the public and private debates over what do about what LAPD Chief Bratton describes as “the worst social disaster in the country.”

Now, they are the genesis of a five-part documentary written and directed by Sam, and sponsored by Good Magazine, that debuts today on Myspace. We couldn't be prouder of Sam and the light he's helped shine on this issue.
