"A Twist of Lemmon" is based on Chris Lemmon's book, of the same name, which tells the story of a beloved Hollywood icon, his dad, Jack Lemmon. Jack starred in over 60 films, was nominated for 8 Academy Awards and won 2 Oscars. One for "Mister Roberts" for Best Supporting Actor and the other for "Save the Tiger" for Best Actor.

He tells Jack's story in his father's voice and chronicles his life from birth until his death in 2001 at the age of 76. He'll have you crying and laughing with his stories about Jack's relationships both on and off the screen with producers, directors and legends like James Cagney, Gregory Peck, Marilyn Monroe and of course his best friend Walter Matthau.

Chris is an exceptional performer, actor, and a classically trained musician. With a career spanning over 30 years, he's starred in over 25 feature films including "Just the Ticket", "Lena's Holiday" and "That's Life." Chris also starred on several television series on all the major networks including "Knots Landing" {CBS}, "Studio 59" {ABC}, "Brother & Sisters" {NBC} and Fox's situation comedy, "Duet."

Jack loved his son, Chris, but like many actors put his career first and family second. It's that relationship that's the focal point for this extremely moving story.
