NOCTURNAL Throwback Episode #4

Homicide detectives Bryan Clauser and Pookie Chang report to their bosses, San Francisco Chief of Police Amy Zou and sub-chief Sean Robertson. They discuss the weird symbols seen at the Alex Panos murder scene (the same symbols seen in Bryan’s dreams).

Pookie sends the symbols to be analyzed by John “Black Mr. Burns” Smith. Meanwhile, someone at the SFPD knows more than they’re letting on, and seems to hold the detectives’ lives in their hands.

NOCTURNAL Throwback Episode #3

Detective Brian Clauser arrived on the scene of a murder that was disturbingly familiar, as if it had come straight out of his nightmares. The body was delivered to medical examiner Robyn Hudson — Bryan’s ex-girlfriend. Robyn’s autopsy revealed information that doesn’t make sense… unless the killer was not human.

NOCTURNAL Throwback Episode #1

In the first episode of NOCTURNAL, we see into the strange, stalking dreams of San Francisco Homicide detective Brian Clauser. He and his partner, Pookie Chang, investigate a string of gang-related disappearances. Disappearances which are linked by signs of violence, but no bodies; and urine all over the crime scene.

The streets of San Francisco unleash a torrent of noir characters: crime lord Johnny Yee, mob boss Frank Lanza, street bum Aggie James, and Rex Deprovdechuk, a teenager suffering constant bullying at the hands of his classmates.
