When VH1 President Michael Hirschorn read the rave review of Torgoff’s book Can’t Find My Way Home in Rolling Stone, the network approached him about turning it into a multi-part television series. Torgoff scripted the book into four hour long episodes and the series, a coproduction of Sundance, became one of the most successful doc series in the network’s history: With repeated viewings it was seen by a combined audience of well over 100 million people. As Torgoff also played the role of the principal on-camera commentator, the series earned him recognition as a television personality and expert on this and related subjects.
