'Hogan's Heroes' Star Bob Crane -- Bombshell Reveal on Live TV ... Son Stunned (Video)

15 November 2016 5:05 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

The key piece of evidence that led authorities to prosecute Bob Crane's best friend for murder was bogus ... and Crane's son is shocked beyond words. John Carpenter was prosecuted for murdering the "Hogan's Hero" star back in 1994, and the centerpiece of the trial was blood found in Carpenter's rent-a-car. DNA tests at the time were not nearly as reliable as today, so the jury had a reasonable doubt. But authorities never wavered. Phoenix Fox »

Mike Gold: Hogan’s Weirdos

12 October 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

We could spend the rest of this year debating which American teevee show has been the weirdest, but Hogan’s Heroes has got to make the top 10 list.

The high-concept: Hogan’s Heroes is the story of a group of Allied prisoners-of-war who operate a highly effective spy and sabotage operation from a bunker beneath their prison building during World War II. Okay, that’s kinda weird. It’s also kinda in bad taste. Its weirdness is abetted by several additional factors, not the least of which is… there’s some truth behind the laughs.

There really was a WWII Pow named Robert Hogan who did time in a place called Stalag 13. He was Lt. Robert Steadham Hogan, a B24 pilot who was shot down on January 19, 1945 in while on a mission over Yugoslavia. Because he was an officer, Hogan was incarcerated in the Oflag 13 camp outside of Nuremberg because »

'The People v. O.J. Simpson' Writers Found 6 Characters for their 'Shakespearean High-Wire Act'

“If you look at the projects that Scott and I have chosen to do over the years,” says screenwriter/producer Larry Karaszewski, “whether it’s Ed Wood or Larry Flynt or Andy Kaufman or Bob Crane or Margaret Keane, these are all fairly fringe, odd….” “You think so?” interrupts Scott Alexander. “You think, Larry?” Read More: "How 'American Crime Story' Explains Our Obsession with the O.J. Simpson Trial"  There’s a slight difference with "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson" (FX), though. “Odd” certainly applies more than ever with these characters; we’ll take your Tor Johnson and raise you one Kato Kaelin. But “fringe”? Not so much. The writing duo had the luxury of assuming that every real-life detail in "Ed Wood" or "Big Eyes" would come as a freshly absurd revelation to 99 percent of a mainstream audience.
