San Francisco Story Works' first web radio feature, North Beach Private Eye, made its debut November 1, 1999, featuring private eye NICK SLOAN.
This is a radio play that in 1999 boasted that it was "destined to be a feature length motion picture," according to the advance promo. "North Beach is a cross between The Maltese Falcon, Sweeny Todd and The Rocky Horror Picture Show...Nick Sloan a washed up over the hill PI who's about to join the ranks of the homless, until he is introduced to his client Elizabeth Bennett. She is a wealthy, neurotic, society dame who's got troubles in spades and whose lover the Countess Anne Von Hess is probably more trouble than she's worth. Stay tuned... for the most original dective series to come along since Sam Spade."
Alas, it seems to have disappeared shortly after (or possibly during) its second story arc. If anyone knows what happened, please drop me a line.
