Behind the scenes | Hear from the filmmaker of the “Being Blago” documentary
Episode 1: I want you to run
Rod Bragojevic, a child of immigrant parents, becomes a state aide in Chicago and then marries a family in a political powerhouse. His father-in-law nailed him to run for state representatives and began promotion to the state’s highest position, governor.
What started as Rod’s dream becomes a nightmare when his relationship with his father-in-law begins to collapse. Politics is no longer “fun”, nor is it the pressure of power.
At the same time, Illinois Senator Barack Obama becomes president of the United States, and Rod is in charge of naming his successor. What he doesn’t know is that his private conversations aren’t that private. The federal government is approaching.
Episode 2: Everything falls
The FBI wants to use Rod’s phone and office to prove that he actually tried to sell President Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat. Rod claims he was trying to make a political arrangement without personally benefiting from appointing a senator.
Rod was tried and impeached as governor, and in the process he was banned from regaining power in Illinois. Rod then starred in media blitz such as “The View,” “Good Morning America,” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”
His criminal trial begins with Rod’s promise to take a position, but things change and Rod finds him “too talkative.”
Flashforwarding towards today, Rod emphasizes that he has no plans to run for power, but has not ruled it out. Meanwhile, his wife, Patty, has a strong view that Rod is running for something again.
Episode 3: Today’s Hair, Tomorrow Will Disappear
Rod tells the last time he spent at home with his wife and two girls, knowing he was sentenced to 14 years in prison and going to jail.
Patty has to deal with becoming two single mothers overnight, and she struggles while her husband is imprisoned in half of the country.
When all the Brago Jevic family’s legal complaints are exhausted, the only hope they have is presidential intervention. They knew little about the former reality show host Rod worked with to get the best office in the country.
Patty solves the problem with her own hands, hoping to bring her husband home, with the help of a mysterious man.
Meanwhile, Rod prepares to cover one of his idols with a song that sounds faithful to him in one or more ways.
Episode 4: Rod vs Everyone
Rod set out to correct one of his biggest mistakes and challenged the law, saying he could never maintain his political position in Illinois.
Patty does not want Rod to move forward in their lives, claiming that he would never participate in another court battle and that “Rod would never be able to clear his name.” In addition, Patty informs Rod that if he intends to take power again, it will be with his second wife.
