Brad Lewis appeared with author James Ellroy on the Discovery Channel.
James Ellroy's LA: City of Demons
Premiered Wednesday, January 19 at 10 PM (ET)
Brad was the special guest for episode #6-Hot Spot Homicide. He was sought out for his expertise and research on two famous Hollywood unsolved murders. Brad's account of the Sherry's Shooting on the Sunset Strip, across from Bing Crosby's building finally provided a gruesome-but-detailed account of all the players. Ten years later, the murder of Jack "The Enforcer" Whalen at Rondelli's in the Valley, left the police baffled. Was comedian Joey Bishop really there? With all the Rat Pack connections to the mob, Joey was the only one to testify at a mob murder trial!
Brad provided an hour and one half of interview material for the show.
The six-part series is now available on DVD.
