NY Post Page Six: TABLOID PRODUCER DARWEN ABOUT TO HAVE DOC HIT FESTIVAL CIRCUIT
Wayne Darwen — the tabloid TV producer who worked on “A Current Affair” and inspired Robert Downey Jr.’s character in “Natural Born Killers” — has a documentary, “High There,” about to hit the film festival circuit.
“Sex, drugs, booze, idiocy . . . horrible, degenerate stuff. That’s what people want to see,” Darwen growls in his Australian accent in the film’s trailer. “Give them what they f - - king want.”
Darwen went to Hawaii to film a marijuana travel series, “only to become lost in a fog of drugs, sex and paranoia as he uncovers a secret government war to control the marijuana trade,” imdb.com says.
When Darwen returned to the mainland and posted a short sizzle reel of footage on YouTube, the trailer garnered 1.5 million hits.
Now, he is being compared to Hunter S. Thompson. Good on you, mate!
