8b DAILY TELEVISION GUIDE The Times Herald Port Huron. Mich. Tuesday, July 23, 1991 Lifetime livens up summer offerings Gannett News Service In the free-for-all brawl of television, this is a key counterpunch. Tonight, when the networks have their guards down, the Lifetime cable channel will take its biggest swipe and launch two hours of new series. "This is a big step," Pat Fili, the Lifetime programming chief said "It's very big, very risky, but it can do a lot. "Yet, it's also a natural evolution. How do you build a reputation? You do it with series, not movies." Lifetime's reputation involves drawing women. Now it hopes to do that with an odd trio of shows: "Confessions of Crime," at 9 p.m., is a reality show with a twist. The criminal has already been caught. Interviews try to piece together why it happened. "The Hidden Room," at 9:30 p.m. is sort of a "Twilight Zone" for the soul. This anthology drama digs into dark fears and pain, without pretending to have solutions. At 10 p.m. is "Veronica Clare," starring Laura Robinson as a sleek private eye works out of a jazz club. "It's non-violent," Robinson said. "It brings to mind the mysteries of the '40s." All three shows aim firmly for Lifetime's natural audience. But they also seem biz-arrely mismatched sitting at opposite ends of the emotional scale. "Confessions of Crime" and "The Hidden Room" pulsate -with strong passions, "Veronica Clare" is the the mellowest. Certainly, "Veronica Clare" has a smoky sweetness to its music, its look and the soothing beauty of Robinson's narration. But beyond, the first two episodes have emotions so cool that they're on the verge of freezing. By comparison, the "Confessions" opener quivers with emotion. Edith Mendez describes the events that led her to stab her abusive husband to death. "Hidden Room" could be the real find. The half-hour stories have intense emotions, powerful camerawork and strong performances. The second "Hidden Room" has Lara Flynn Boyle ("Twin Peaks"), as a coed plagued by the incestuous relationship with her father. The opener has Alice Krige unable to shake the , memory of her stillborn baby.
