Keeping Up with the Shell Companies Next Door

Hosted by

"A new generation of hyper-luxury homes with stratospheric price tags is colonizing the most gilded hillsides and canyons of Los Angeles." That's according to the New York Times, in a series about shell companies that hide the real ownership of such properties -- not just from celebrity hounds but local and international law enforcement. We hear about the "Starship Enterprise" and other monstrosities in Bel-Air and around the country.

Later on the program, an old hand gets a new job in Los Angeles: protecting children.
