#1 Norma Jeane: Discovering Truths

The Marilyn: Behind the Icon producers Nina Boski, Randall Libero and Gary Vitacco-Robles talk about their perspective on developing this dramatic series from a historical and factual approach. Gary offers reasons why his commentary regarding Marilyn Monroe’s mental health perspective is important to tell Marilyn’s story accurately. They explore Marilyn’s goals to become an actress, wife, and mother, her personal challenges and crises related to intergenerational mental illness in her family, and her own childhood trauma. The co-writers reflect upon the responsibility of ethical research, legitimate sources and new source material unearthed by recent auctions. See more at BehindtheIcon.com.
