Can’t get enough of the 80s? Don’t worry, season two of “The DON” has just what you need to satisfy your craving for Hollywood’s decade of decadence. Join host – film, tv, and stage actress, and star of NBC’s The L Word - Malaya Rivera Drew as she takes a look at American film producer Don Simpson’s impact on 80s pop culture through his movies such as American Gigolo, Flashdance, Beverly Hills Cop, and Top Gun. Drew continues a deep dive into Simpson’s alter-ego, “The Don,” a persona created to match his signature movies – loud, ballsy, and cheezy - and how Don’s inability to separate life and art inspired some of the most iconic characters, and trends of the 1980s. Intrigued? Tune into iHeart’s “The DON” on Thursday, May 26 to catch the season two premiere.
