About the Ankler

The Ankler is a newsletter about and for the entertainment industry, edited and written by Richard Rushfield, with the help of many friends.

After a long career covering Hollywood for every publication and website known to man, Rushfield founded The Ankler in early 2017 as a place where the real stories could be told.  From mishigas in the mail room to craziness in the commissary, The Ankler is there, giving Hollywood a voice.  With pointed and insightful analysis and deadly industry gossip, The Ankler has become the indispensable read for Hollywood’s plugged in elites, and elite adjacents.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns – please give me a holler at richard@theankler.com. Love to hear from you.
