Ellroy's LA

James Ellroy, LA's foremost neo-noirist, writes and hosts a new television show called "James Ellroy's LA: City of Demons," in which he and a corrupt, animated, talking dog named Barko discuss the city's criminal underbelly. FishbowlLA talks with Ellroy about the show and about his relationship with Los Angeles--he says that being born on Wilshire Boulevard in 1948, plus having a "a Hollywood bottom feeder" father, made his obsession with noir inevitable.
