What's more deranged than a TV sitcom set in a Nazi prisoner of war camp? How about a drummer, radio personality and TV star who likes to feature himself in dirty home movies and gets himself bludgeoned to death in his Phoenix apartment? Hah? HAH?! And that's just the outline of this bizarre tale of Bob Crane, star of the hit TV series "Hogan's Heroes," whose questionable friendship with a video equipment sales executive in the late 60's and early 70's is still the buzz of Hollywood - and not only because John Henry Carpenter put the Betamax to use for purposes other than intended - but also because of his purported involvement in Crane's bloody death in 1978 - something never proven and keeps this story as fascinating as the day the body was discovered. Join Melissa as she makes the strangest visit to TVLand ever attempted.
