Written by seasoned TV producer James D Parriott from a story by Interview with the Vampire author Anne Rice, and with Superman Dean Cain headlining, this haunting pilot might have expected a series green light. Perhaps it was a mistake to consciously avoid those New Orleans clich├ęs. Maybe the blend of crime and horror didn't quite gel. But the prime reason this supernatural drama with a Randall and Hopkirk twist fails to work is the lack of rapport between Cain's Irish-Italian policeman - who just happens to be a former priest - and Robert Patrick as the ghostly cop who assists him in his cases.

Plot Summary

The life of a priest seconded to a New Orleans police department begins to fall apart when he is wrongly implicated in the shooting of a suspect. However, it comes to light that the precinct is haunted by the spirit of a deceased policeman, who helps the beleaguered cleric to solve the case and clear his name. Supernatural drama, with Dean Cain, Robert Patrick and Carroll Baker.
