Los Angeles, 1964. Radio host Bob Crane wins the lead role in the TV show Hogan's Heroes, set in a World War II prison camp. The show becomes a hit, but Crane's home life suffers when his wife Anne discovers girlie magazines in their garage. On the Hogan's set, Crane meets hi-fi installer John Carpenter, who turns Crane on to his passions for video tape recorders and strip clubs. Soon the two are pairing up for after-show sex with the strippers. Crane begins an affair with Hogan's cast member Patri Olson, and breaks with Carpenter over the latter's apparent bisexuality, but the two make up. Crane marries Patti, but Hogan's Heroes is cancelled, and with two families to support, Crane begins playing dinner theatres around the country, Carpenter joining him for their usual exploits. Crane's agent Lenny warns him to be careful of his off-screen image, and after Patti decides to divorce him, his popularity slumps. Trying to go straight, Crane breaks conclusively with Carpenter. Later that night, someone slips into Crane's hotel room...
