THE SERIES

Nikki & Nora follows New Orleans locals Nikki Beaumont (Liz Vassey) and Nora Delaney (Christina Cox), former NOPD cops turned private investigators.  They navigate the channels of their personal life together alongside their dedication to uncovering the truth in the one city that really likes to keep its secrets, New Orleans. 

 

THE HISTORY

The original Nikki & Nora pilot, shot in 2004, was the first lesbian-themed drama series in serious consideration for a network TV slot.   When this “ahead of its time” series did not get an order, the pilot was leaked on the Internet to an underserved TV audience, a loyal fan base was created… And they never stopped loving their favorite Big Easy couple.  YouTube exploded with videos and tributes to the couple, as well as fan-fiction sites dedicated to imagining and telling the stories of these two women who inspired them.

 

When creator, Nancylee Myatt, approached her stars about a reboot of her original idea, they came on board without hesitation to recreate their roles as Nikki and Nora. Nikki & Nora will be the first time an unaired network pilot has been re-imagined and made for distribution exclusively on the web.  All made possible by fans that would not let go of this concept and this crime fighting couple in America’s oldest party town.  They rallied around the creator, producers and cast supporting the crowd-funding campaign, which is now the largest funded campaign with lesbian lead characters - surpassing their goal by 30%.  The first released trailer has proven so popular, so fast, it is clear the audience is much broader than anticipated. In a television landscape loaded with garden-variety procedurals, there is room for one that is sexy, funny and as mysterious as the city it is set in.

 

SEASON ONE takes Nikki and Nora into the underbelly of the New Orleans music scene when they're hired to work on a case that puts them in the spotlight and the headlights: the possible murder of an up-and-coming musician.  Meanwhile at home, Nikki and Nora tackle the rising tide of core family issues while their new home is in the throes of renovation.  Guest starring: Jim Beaver, Tess Harper, Janina Gravankar, Armin Shimerman, Kitty Swink, Aasha Davis, Larry Poindexter.

Starring Julie Goldman & Brandy Howard

Roomies
