Based on a manuscript by Rodney Sheldon, the film serves as a biopic of sorts for Paul Snider and Somen “Steve” Banerjee, the men who went through unlikely steps to form the popular nightclub franchise. The film is said to chart the improbable rise and fall of Banerjee, who went from pumping gas in Culver City to running a high-end nightclub that evolved into Chippendales. After hiring a New York choreographer to polish the all-male dance troupe, Banerjee became wildly rich, as well as unreasonably competitive and paranoid.
