Screenwriters Get a Tutorial from the FBI

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Police Department gained international fame by turning over its files to scriptwriters in the early days of TV.  Joe Wambaugh is only one of the cops who made millions turning real life into fiction.  J. Edgar Hoover had a keen eye for Hollywood possibilities too, but not until yesterday did the FBI host its first formal workshop for screenwriters—at the Federal Building in Hollywood.
