Burrows and Lords Writer/director Stephen Burrows produces a hilarious new film starring Tim Matheson, Jerry Stiller and Traci Lords about a struggling writer who goes to Hollywood seeking his fortune and fame only to fail and find himself forced to return to his naitive Wisconsin, land of beer and cheese. The film is a funny, heart warming rags to rags tale.
