So if you belong to any section of Lesbian (or possibly even LGBTQ fandom) and you like Cop shows, you’ve probably no doubt heard of a show that didn’t even make it to air, called Nikki & Nora. In fact you’re like many of the legion of fans the show has, you have found a copy of it and watched it numerous times.
For the uninitiated whose attention I’ve caught, Nikki & Nora is a cop show set in New Orleans. The main characters, Nikki, played by Liz Vassey, and Nora, played by Christina Cox, are two detectives on the NOPD (New Orleans Police Department for the non-Americans reading this blog). They also happen to be in a relationship.
When the pilot was found by the fans, and demolished at a rather fast pace, we were touched by the way the relationship was so natural between the two main characters, and also by the way each of them is dealing with their sexuality in relation to family and coming out.
Fancy watching it now? Guess what, I found a copy online:
Nikki and Nora [Unaired Pilot] by UnknownArchiveTV
We all thought it was lost to the dismal abyss of unaired pilots that would never make it. But it could now do so as a web series, with our help.
That’s right, if you’ve not already heard the news, our beloved pilot might actually get a web series all of it’s own. But funding is needed. And this is where we come in. They are crowdsourcing to raise the funds and that means, if we pledge, we could get our beloved show. So what are you waiting for? Help raise the funds to bring the web series to life!
