Hosted from Galveston, this episode of Texas Entertainment News, broadcast in August of 1996, highlights summer films and events throughout Texas. Brief interviews and updates on native Texan celebrities spotlight Matthew McConaughey, Robin Wright, and Shaquille O'Neal. Other segments include a feature on the Galveston seawall mural, music video director and Galveston-native Wayne Miller (who has worked with Texas artists such as Asleep at the Wheel, Lyle Lovett and Kelly Willis,) and a look ways to beat the summer heat in Dallas.

Texas Entertainment News was created by media producer Fred Miller in 1996. Hosted by Tom McConnell and Leisa Hart (of Total Fitness "Buns of Steel" fame), its goal was to provide a weekly look into entertainment production and events throughout Texas. Airing on Sunday nights at 10:30pm, it was anchored at WFFA in Dallas and carried by 15 affiliates statewide. In addition to the television broadcast, TEN had an online component- a fairly unique experience in 1996. A total of 33 episodes were made before the show was canceled at the end of its first season.
