New Orleans locals Nikki Beaumont and Nora Delany juggle the inner-workings of their personal lives with their roles as private investigators in America’s oldest party town.
In 2004 the Nikki and Nora pilot was the first lesbian-themed drama series under serious consideration for a television network (UPN). While the series was never picked up the pilot did leak to the internet and gained a huge loyal fanbase and, ten years later, it aired online.
