The project was created-by and stars the multi award-winning Hollins brothers, King Jeff and Gorio, and chronicles the activities inside one specific Louisiana police interrogation room as Homicide Detectives listen to tales told by suspects, witnesses and other individuals related to various murder cases.

Each stylishly unconventional episode opens in present day with an individual reading from the popular crime anthology book, Tales from the Murder Room. The storyline quickly shifts to a black-and-white flashback scenario of the Detectives involved in an interrogation of someone uniquely involved in a murder case. Then, as each examination concludes the story cuts back to present day and the chapter is closed.

Season One consists of four 15-minute episodes centered around different interview subjects, ranging from an alleged mailman murderer, to a pompous pimp, to a hesitant hero and even a debate among the Detectives. Gorio, who plays the role of Lt. George Rook, shares, "I love the format of the show, because it allows us to go in any direction story and style wise."

Based on characters from King Jeff’s feature film, The Murder Men, the streaming series now delivers a fresh approach. King Jeff, who plays the role of Detective Jerry July, explains, “These four episodes are completely different from each other in regards to the guest characters, the plot and even the styles of filming. I think this is what will keep audiences interested and coming back for more. Every type of genre has been done before, but it’s our job as creators to offer a fresh take on the detective story which is different from past shows -- and we have definitely accomplished that.”
