About this show

Hollywood 1939. Famed producer David O. Selznick is three weeks into filming his latest historical epic, Gone With The Wind, but the screenplay just isn't working. He hires script doctor Ben Hecht to rewrite the script in five days -- but Hecht has never read the book! What's a mogul to do? Selznick pulls director Victor Fleming from The Wizard of Oz and with Hecht, the three men spend five days locked in the producer's office re-enacting Margaret Mitchell's bestseller to craft a screenplay that will become one of the most successful films of all time. Inspired by true events, Moonlight and Magnolias is a wildly funny and winning story that illuminates the behind-the-scenes business of movie-making -- and the larger-than-life egos -- during the Golden Age of Hollywood.
