A Hero is notable for courage in situations of physical or moral danger, for risks taken or sacrifices made for the benefit of others.
Veteran bodyguard and security expert, Don Wilson, has spent the last 35 years protecting the rich and famous in Hollywood. A no-nonsense professional, with a penchant for cowboy boots, Don has garnered the reputation of a seasoned pro who can discretely handle the most delicate of situations.
Welcome to the shark infested waters of Hollywood, where personal protection is big business. If you moved here for all the wrong reasons, you’re either trying to befriend or to exploit the chosen few to a get a “leg up.” It’s hard to know whom to trust when the threat of kidnapping, extortion and lawsuits could potentially cost millions. Many claim to offer the level of security the affluent crave, but few have the skill and experience to efficiently handle an unexpected crisis.
The Handler will provide an inside view into the world of Don Wilson and his top-notch team of security experts as they “handle” the complicated lives of Hollywood’s elite.
Dubbed ‘The Handler’ by a studio head for his ability to handle any situation. Don is a modern day Dirty Harry with a heart of gold and an infectious laugh. As the son of a bull rider and Texas bounty hunter, Don was raised to be alert and cautious at all times. He credits his initial success to his boots, having carved a niche in the early years for crushing the toes of paparazzi who tried to snap pictures of star clients.
A devoted family man with strong values, Don is a modern day American Hero. Money doesn’t motivate him the way family does. “Everyone deserves to know their family is safe,” and with the aide of his devoted employees, family protection is Don’s number one priority.
Undeniably professional and genuine, Don is respected for his knowledge and skill, but in demand for his individualism and character. Throughout his career he has worked closely with the local law enforcement, FBI, CIA, celebrities, and studio heads. The bulk of his most recent work comes from the ridiculously wealthy and eccentric in Hollywood.
