Table for Two

Table for Two

For decades, Bruce Bozzi worked at the highest end of the service industry, managing his family’s storied restaurant, The Palm. And if he learned one thing, it’s that the best parties always end up in the kitchen. Table for Two is based on that premise, and on the friendships Bruce has forged along the way with some of the most well-known people in Hollywood, media, and beyond. Over the romance of a meal at one of his favorite restaurants, Bruce interviews a special guest and seeks to untangle the intricate web of power and fame. Tune in for Table for Two—like all the best dinner parties, it’s intimate, a bit conspiratorial, and a whole lot of fun.

It’s difficult to imagine Jeff Goldblum anywhere but center stage—and no one is more aware of this than the actor himself, who has always had a clear sense of artistic purpose. With almost no plan of action, a teenage Goldblum took to New York City, and through the 1970s appeared in films directed by the likes of Robert Altman and Philip Kaufman. Later hits in what has become a five decade career came in The Big Chill, The Fly, and...

Michael Mann thinks of directing from the inside out. Even when he's working with established actors like Roberto De Niro and Daniel Day-Lewis, he focuses on providing a stimulus—through script, choreography, and verbal cues—that the performers can react to. This approach has earned Mann a reputation for bringing out the best in his casts, and for creating characters in films like Heat and The Last of the Mohicans that are at once ...
