Four and a half years ago, I recorded my first podcast episode of “The Tobolowsky Files” with Stephen Tobolowsky, featuring true stories about life, love, and Hollywood. Stephen is an incredible storyteller and in the time since that first podcast was published here at slashfilm.com, even more people have gotten the chance to enjoy his stories through a book from Simon & Schuster, a radio show by Public Radio International, and several sold-out live shows.
Now we’d like to take Stephen’s stories to the big screen. And we need your help to do it.
