Bedtime Stories of the Ingleside Inn is inspired by the memoir of Melvyn Haber, the irrepressible owner of the infamous Melvyn’s Restaurant and Ingleside Inn in Palm Springs, CA. Alexander stars as Mel.
Palm Springs was an ancestral home to legendary figures like the Rat Pack, a vacation staple for the mafia, and the favored haunt for celebrities behaving badly. Mel, completely inexperienced in the hospitality industry, struggles to get his new business off the ground, clashing with and catering to Hollywood’s elite – as well as a few drag queens, pornographers, and mobsters to boot.
Laura Ramadei and Ryan Willison wrote the audio series, which is produced by Michael Sugar’s SUGAR23, Audio Up Media and Lance Bass Productions.
Bedtime Stories of the Ingleside Inn is the latest scripted podcast for the company, which was founded by Jared Gutstadt. Deadline has recently revealed that Audio Up is behind Sonic Leap starring Anthony Anderson and James Ellroy’s Hollywood Death Trip.
