Episode Info

The story of poet-playwright Lemon Andersen as he strives for a second shot at success after hitting a rough patch following his turn in Russell Simmons' Tony Award-winning "Def Poetry Jam" during the early 2000s. As the documentary opens, his glory days seem long gone: He, his wife and their two kids share a cramped apartment with his in-laws and other family members. But he hasn't given up hope. "County of Kings," an autobiographical one-man show, may change everything. He just needs backers.
