The Plot Thickens


What's The Plot Thickens about?

Welcome to The Plot Thickens, a documentary podcast from Turner Classic Movies. Each season we'll bring you a story about the movies and the people who make them. Our first season is about a young cinephile who quickly rose to become one of Hollywood's top directors. But Peter Bogdanovich soon found himself a victim of jealousy, hubris, public scorn - and a devastating crime. Along with host Ben Mankiewicz, Peter looks back on his life and tries to make sense of fame and failure. "I'm Still Peter Bogdanovich" is a remarkable story of loss, perseverance, and the solace of cinema.
