Overview

What do you know, really?

Sure. Having enough talent to act, direct, or write a screenplay is one set of skills. But navigating both the main streets and back alleys of Hollywood cannot be done with GPS. Ride shotgun with screenwriting and producing veteran Doug Richardson as he skillfully - yet so amusingly - lives, dies, survives, and thrives in the entertainment trenches.

The Smoking Gun is more than a collection of true Hollywood stories, box office success and jaw-dropping failures. It’s a guided tour behind the curtain of an industry that is equal parts bright lights, backstabbing, and double-dealing. Buckle up, step into your steel jockstrap, and get ready to do battle in the carnival funhouse otherwise known as showbiz.
