L.A. Noire meets X-Files…
Star Noir is a 6-Part detective story following Homicide Detective Alan Miller and his grey alien partner Ellis Tate as they travel across 1940’s Los Angeles to find an elusive shapeshifter killing officers in Central Station.
It’s inspired by the grit and tone of noir books like James Ellroy’s The Big Nowhere, has the snappy dialogue of Humphrey Bogart’s The Big Sleep, and depicts a stylized 1940’s Los Angeles as seen in movies like Chinatown and L.A. Confidential.
1947. Detective Alan Miller, a man who has nightmares about being abducted by aliens, is called to investigate the murder of beloved Traffic Detective Patrick Perkins. When Alan arrives to the crime scene on the 6th Street Bridge, he finds the late Detective brutally murdered with his heart removed from his chest.
Detective Miller’s only lead in the case is a beautiful silver Studebaker Starlight left abandoned on the bridge with another person’s blood inside.
With more questions than answers, Alan is met in the middle of the night by a grey alien who speaks to him telepathically. The alien informs Alan that a shapeshifter not only killed Patrick Perkins, but that this creature is hiding within Central Police Station.
