EPISODE PREMIERE MARCH 16, 2017
Welcome to the bustling metropolis known as Tiverton Falls...well, with a population of 4671 not exactly a metropolis, but to Detective Banion it is. While he'd rather be a "top cop in Moscow or Afghanistan, hiding in the shadows, with a license to kill," fate has brought him here. Described as a combination of Joe Friday, Dick Tracy and Colonel Flagg all rolled into one, he'll use any method possible in his relentless pursuit to keep the town crime-free. Banion and the town's commitment to law and order is evidenced by the new $75 million police administration building.
Joining Banion in his fight against crime is Police Chief O'Houlihan, a grizzled veteran who brings years of experience to the job. His main task is keeping the overzealous Banion on point, while managing his department in this new age of computers, doohickeys and an actual human resources department.
The newest member of the force, Junior Officer Toby Gunderson, is a graduate of the Tiverton Falls Police and Dance Academy. (They were merged due to budget cuts) Toby is young but eager to learn, with a personality quite the opposite of Banion's hard core intensity. Old school Banion and O'Houlihan have their suspicions about
Toby, but he may be the most normal one on the force.
Due to budget cuts the TFPD does not have a coroner or CSI on staff. The work is contracted out to Dr. Oskar Finch. Little is known about Finch other than he used to have a castle near the cliffs but was forced to downsize, and now operates out a small space in a strip mall next to a Jimmy Johns. Finch is considered an "outsider" to the scientific community, and even Banion admits that his methods are "questionable".
At one time Tiverton Falls was home to four daily newspapers, the Post, the Press, the Gazette, and the Independent. One by one they failed and merged until today there is only one paper in town, the Tiverton Falls Post Press Gazette Independent, which publishes a morning print and afternoon online edition. (Or sometimes the other way around) Keeping an eye on the TFPD is ace reporter Ida Ratchit, who, in her own words, has been "slinging ink since the Eisenhower Administration, and there ain't no story I can't get with a jug of Listerine and a jar of Korean War era petroleum jelly."
BANION is written by Owen Dunne and performed by the Ranch Road Players.
