Testing Dirty
A thought- provoking drama about random drug-testing programs focuses on Will Hatch (Christopher Daniel Barnes) a high school senior who tests positve- but isn't using drugs. Will, one of the three students "caught" in a test designed to identify substance abusers, finds himself kicked off the swimming team and forbidden to see his girlfriend Carla (Lisa Dean Ryan). — TV Guide
"Testing Dirty, Todays ABC Afterschool special is too good for Daytime Television... Christopher Daniel Barnes turns in a superb performance...Lisa Dean Ryan is equally compelling'" — Hollywood Reporter
For Testing Dirty, Lynn received the Directors Guild Award for Outstanding Direction in a Daytime Drama.
