Trivia

In the opening scene, Karen is trying to get backstage at a Mickey Ratt concert at the Whiskey a Go Go, but the bouncer denies her. The bouncer is played by Stephen Pearcy, the lead singer of the Sunset Strip-based glam metal band Ratt, whose original name was Mickey Ratt (although, by 1982, when the concert supposedly took place, the band had already shortened its name to Ratt).

Quotes

Jack Roth: This killer wants fame and recognition. That's why he dumped the body at the Hillside Strangler's location. So at this point, we will release no information about him. He isn't going to get the attention he craves. He doesn't deserve it. From this point forward, no more limelight, or accolades, no more fear. Nobody cares about this killer.

Let down, terrible pilot
28 October 2015 | by divajoolsSee all my reviews

I'm a huge Ed Westwick fan, and had high hopes for this. I thought the trailers made it look really good, and it was really talked up. But after last night.no wonder it's failing in the critic world and had ABC's record low fall premiere. It was terrible! It was so rushed, no back story was given, i didn't give a *beep* about any of the characters because there was no time to give a *beep* As soon as i was getting into a scene it was dropped and rushed onto the next. the pilot has lined this show up to fail.

this show definitely won't last, unfortunately (or maybe a bit fortunately).
