This episode of Texas Entertainment News, broadcast in August of 1996, features interviews with actors Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid on the release of their latest film King Pin. The music report spotlights San Antonio musician Jim Cullum's jazz band, Austin band Storyville, and an interview with Malford Milligan. Other highlight segments include a look at San Antonio's art community, and interviews with a Schlitterbahn ride and water feature designer, and Austin-based humorist Cactus Pryor.

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.
