Season One Synopsis: Slate and Kelly are misfit detectives that fate throws together to solve a string of murders in a drag club. When drag queens start showing up dead and the police are unable to infiltrate the community to find the killer, Slate is on the case, sure that this is a crime she has a chance of solving and maybe in the process, solving her girlfriend's murder the previous year.

 

Kelly has been asked to act as a beard to help a not so feminine Paris detective go undercover and gain acceptance at the drag club. When Kelly is unceremoniously dumped once his usefulness has passed, he decides to do a little investigating on his own. He is, afterall, the son of a decorated police officer in Los Angeles and he just might have something to prove.

 

Both on the same track, these amateur sleuths are literally thrown together and against Slate's better judgment, she agrees to team up with Kelly. Together they go undercover to drag out a killer in their midst.

Structure: 22 minute episodes with the search for a serial killer spanning the entire season. Slate & Kelly, the drag queens and drag club, core detectives and police precinct will be consistent elements across all seasons.
