James Ellroy to Star in Investigation Discovery TV Series

Today novelist James Ellroy stopped by our offices for a Media Beat interview with TVNewser co-editor Alex Weprin. Both are pictured in the photo embedded above.

Ellroy discussed his memoir, The Hillicker Curse, and outlined his upcoming television series. James Ellroy’s LA: City of Demons premieres on Wednesday,  January 19th at 10 p.m. on Investigation Discovery, so you’ll have to wait until next month to watch the interview.

Here’s more about the show: “This new six-part series shamelessly showcases Ellroy’s larger-than-life personality and his vivid verbal style as he exhumes, explores and exposes the delicious dirt that cascades behind the silver screen.  Ellroy has insidiously instigated himself with law enforcement sources – and he steroid-stamps these stories as only he can.  You’ll get in-depth interviews with witless witnesses, preening prosecutors, insipid investigators and jaded jurors.  Each episode guides viewers through the crevices of crime that demonically define the City of Angels.  Fiercely forcing his way into every episode is the animated, proudly profane bull terrier, Barko.  This gruff K-9 cop corrupts the corruption-prone Ellroy and gives the audience a putrid peek into his own lurid life, dealing dope and peddling payoffs.”
