'The LA Diner' is a character driven, period piece drama set in 1960s Hollywood in a small eating establishment sitting across the street from the studio filming Monroe's final, unfinished film. Evie, Marilyn's stand in, is caught up in the complex world of celebrity and deceit by an unscrupulous Hollywood gossip reporter. Her story unfolds amid the other charming characters at the local diner in the heart of Hollywood called The LA Diner.
