And the first such shows will be certain to capture the low-hanging fruit, i.e. PETER GUNN, STACCATO, etc. to ensure that people will buy into the concept. And they'll look for big names on the small screen to tie things into big-screen noir: those episodes of DANGER discussed down the thread a bit (in late October) are good candidates due to the star power of Paul Newman and James Dean.
Frankly, this is an area that Elliot Lavine pioneered some years back and it's a bit surprising that during the pandemic he didn't see fit to try such a show in the "streaming" mode. With a lot of material either up on YouTube already or capable of being uploaded there (or possibly to Vimeo), a 4-6 week series in February-March would be a terrific litmus test to gauge people's interest. Elliot just completed a successful streaming series with the Roxie for American noir, and this could be a good follow-up, particularly if it's timed to follow on to what is likely to be some kind of virtual NOIR CITY SF likely to emerge on the heels of the just-completed virtual version of the international show.
Not sure Elliot is still lurking here, so I'll get in touch directly and sound him out on this idea...we'll see if anything comes of it.
