    • Synopsis
    • „John Adrian“ is an animated crime-noir series, with 30-minute episodes, each featuring one case, with several meta-plots evolving during one season.
      The series is set in the fictional Southern state city „Noreau-City“, which combines features of New Orleans and Gotham City. The visual style is based on Expressionism, Film-Noir, and mature cartoon animation.
      Each episode is narrated by John in a classic Noir-style manner. The music borrows elements from 60s surf music, Hard Rock and Jazz and blends them together to form a soundtrack that reflects the mood of Noreau-City.
      The cases are a blend of conspiracy theories, urban legends and classic whodunits. John‘s cases seem to be straight forward at first glance, but unfortunately they tend to end in disaster. Despite his reputation as „Noreau City‘s worst Private Eye“ he manages to solve his cases... more or less.
