Synopsis:

Shep Gordon is the consummate Hollywood insider. Gordon has become a beacon in the industry, beloved by the countless stars he has encountered throughout his storied career. Shep is known for managing the careers of many musicians - a career that began with a chance encounter in 1968 with Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. He even found time to invent the "Celebrity Chef." Though the chef as star is part of the culture now, it took Shep's imagination, and his moral outrage at how the chefs were being treated, to monetize the culinary arts into the multi-billion dollar industry it is today. In this film, Gordon's unlikely story will be told by those who know him best, his pals.
