ON CINEMA is a podcast and web series (Adult Swim) hosted by Tim Heidecker with guest Gregg Turkington. Join Tim and Gregg live in-person at The Roxie Theatre for a rare screening of “WIRED”, the 1989 biographical film of comedian and actor John Belushi, directed by Larry Peerce, and adapted from the investigative journalism book “Wired: The Short Live and Fast Times of John Belushi” written by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward published in 1984. It starred Michael Chiklis in his film debut as Belushi. Wired was both a critical and a commercial failure. The film has never been released on DVD, and the videocassette is out of print. The film was marketed with the tagline “For John Belushi, every night was Saturday Night”. The story follows John Belushi shortly after his death from a drug overdose in March 1982, as he awakens in a morgue and is about to undergo an autopsy.
