Episode 1 of THR's new series "In Focus," featuring Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Terence Winter and Jonah Hill, will air Dec. 29 and Jan. 6 on the public broadcaster, which reaches 18 million viewers in Southern California.

The Hollywood Reporter's intimate discussion with The Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese, stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, and screenwriter Terence Winter is headed to PBS SoCal.

The 30-minute interview, Episode 1 of THR's new series "The Hollywood Reporter in Focus," was shot at New York's Le Parker Meridien hotel. The frank discussion touches on topics such as quaaludes, why the film had too much sex for the censors and more details from the story of a busted stockbroker so debauched, he defies belief.

The video interview also can be viewed on The Hollywood Reporter's website and in its most recent iPad edition.
