Clarence Williams III,
In Hollywood you're only as good as your last flick, and Dragonfire Films exec Peter Dragon has hit bottom with his $150 million bomb "Slow Torture." His only hope to get back to the way things were is the shoot-'em-up film "Beverly Hills Gun Club," and the only person that will help him is ex-child star turned hooker Wendy Ward. Written by

HBO wanted to pick up the series, but creator Chris Thompson and Joel Silver elected to go with Fox's higher-budgeted air order instead. Fox ended up airing only 8 shows before the series was canceled, with the remaining 5 episodes left to air on the FX cable network. See more »
Wow! That's all you really need to say about this too-short-lived series.
But since I have the space, let me say this too: I don't think a funnier satire exists or has ever existed on TV. I pray for the day an uncensored DVD is released - this show has me laughing my @ss off for just about the entire time I'm watching it. It's amazing that it ever got made at all, what with all the jokes ripping on the Hollywood community, and everyone gets an equal dose - producers, actors, writers, you name it, this show makes fun of it. Jay Mohr is funnier in this series than in anything else I've ever seen him do, and Ileana Douglas is, as always, fantastic.
Watch it! And to the execs at Fox - put out the DVD, already!
