ABOUT TRUE NOIR:

TRUE NOIR is an original IP franchise developed by Imagination Connoisseurs Unlimited, LLC, and created by author Max Allan Collins, and producers Robert Meyer Burnett, and Mike Bawden. TRUE NOIR stories are based on extensively researched, historical events, and involve true-life characters of the period – blended with a carefully crafted suspense/crime plot featuring Nathan Heller, “detective to the stars.”

True to the “noir” name, the stories are often dark and biting, frequently breaking normal conventions for the detective genre and resulting in complex characters with dark pasts and even darker futures. The first TRUE NOIR stories developed by ICU will be known as “The Nathan Heller Casebooks” and are adapted from Collins’s Nathan Heller series of 19 (soon to be 20) novels featuring the cop-turned-private eye.
