Witness to the Execution ★★ 1994 (PG-13)

It's 1999 and Tycom Entertainment, a pay-perview network, is looking for some hot entertainment. Top exec Jessica (Young) decides to televise the electric chair execution of convicted criminal Dennis Casterline (Daly). But Caster-line claims to be innocent and as the execution date nears Jessica is unsettled by new evidence that may supports his claim. The cutthroat TV execs provide amusement but this TV movie fare quickly becomes muddled. 92m/C VHS . Sean Young, Timothy Daly, Len Cariou, George Newbern; D: Tommy Lee Wallace; W: Thomas Baum.
