The back story
“Nikki & Nora” was a network television pilot, starring Liz Vassey & Christina Cox, shot on location in New Orleans in 2004. It focused on two NOPD detectives who were partners on the force and in life. Had the “Nikki & Nora” pilot been picked up to series, it would have been the first show that focused on a lesbian couple on network TV. When the promotional DVDs of the pilot were leaked onto the internet, the lesbian fanfic community claimed it as their own and kept the story of Nikki & Nora alive. Ten years after the pilot, and funded by the fans, creator Nancylee Myatt and stars Liz Vassey and Christina Cox returned to New Orleans to give this groundbreaking couple another chapter to their story with the webseries “The N&N Files.”
In this season of “The N&N Files” we meet Nora’s niece, Delta, and her wife Daisy. D&D are now the primary partners at Vieux Carre Investigations, keeping the streets of New Orleans safe and gay fabulous.
