Lethal Lit

Official Trailer Season 01 / Episode 00

About Lethal Lit

A teen detective returns to her small hometown where her Aunt was framed 10 years before as a serial killer, determined to use her true-crime podcast to help clear her Aunt’s name. Butas she digs up new evidence, the killings, each staged after a murder from classic literature, begin all over again… with her as the final target.

After the events of Season 1, Tig, Wyn, and Max continue the Lethal Lit podcast, digging into the aftermath of the Lit Killer’s capture and the hunt for his protégé, Oly Price…

CHARACTERS

Tig Torres
Strong, independent, and almost foolishly brave. She’s brought her city smarts from New York to the small town of Hollow Falls, and is determined to follow in the footsteps of her Aunt Beth, an investigative reporter. Her stubbornness won’t let her believe the town’s narrative that her Aunt was the infamous Lit Killer, and she’ll do anything to prove them wrong.

Oly Price
The editor of The Talon, Hollow Falls High’s school paper. Charming, with an easy smile and caring attitude. He helps to uncover the mystery of what really happened to Tig’s Aunt.

Wyn Abbott
A little rough around the edges, but deep down has a good heart – it’s just buried under a lot of layers of flannel and dark eyeliner. Her deadpan one-liners and morose outlook has won the heart of her polar opposite, Max, and they’ve been best friends since they learned how to write.

Max Weinman
As the heart of the group, he bolsters the team with humor. When tested, his true colors show that he’s one of the bravest of them all, although the latest string of murders may leave lasting scars on his upbeat attitude…

Ella Highsmith
Privileged, snarky, and completely in over her head. The daughter of Hollow Falls’ Mayor, she convinces her swarm of social media followers that Tig is behind the new killings and the death of her quarterback boyfriend, Tony Del Canto.

FULL ARTICLE:
Lethal Lit isn’t technically true crime. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a listen. Following on the heels of successful scripted podcast series like Limetown and The Black Tapes Podcast, this show is a fresh take on one of my favorite YA genres: teen detective noir. Our protagonist is Tig Torres, a character who combines the spunk of Veronica Mars with the truth-seeking instincts of, well, Veronica Mars. The conceit is also familiar (in a good way): Tig has returned to her small-town high school after a few years away, and she’s got a Big Problem. Her aunt was a notorious serial killer, which puts her squarely on the outs with the popular kids. But of course Tig believes her aunt was innocent, darn it, and she’s out to prove it! And who’s going to help her? The scrappy kids who run the school newspaper, of course! Produced by iHeart Radio and Einhorn’s Epic Productions, Lethal Lit boasts high production values, solid performances, and the kind of snap-crackle writing that can turn a show for made teens into the best kind of adult guilty pleasure.

Awesome write up on our podcast thanks to Alex Segura. Teaser 2 comes out tomorrow! Stay tuned. #linkinbio #lethallitpodcast #iamtigtorres ——
It started with a phone call. Heather Einhorn and Adam Staffaroni, the masterminds behind the entertainment creative house known as Einhorn’s Epic Productions, wanted to chat. Cool, I thought. I’d known Adam and Heather for a long time - we’d worked together years before and remained friends. It’d be good to catch up, for sure.

But it was much more than that. Heather and Adam were always on the lookout to create new, diverse heroes, and they wanted to take that philosophy to the podcast platform. Would I be interested in co-creating a YA/crime fiction podcast starring a tough, smart latinx teen heroine?

I couldn’t say "yes" fast enough.

As a kid, I read a lot of comics, crime novels and science fiction - from Spider-Man to Batman to Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie to Star Trek and back again. I loved mysteries and adventure stories. But as a Cuban-American kid growing up in Miami, I often wondered - where are the heroes like me?

When I created my own crime novels, starring my fictional private detective, Pete Fernandez, that was always front of mind. Getting the chance to do it again - in partnership with Heather and Adam’s team, iHeart Media, and co-writer Monica Gallagher, has been nothing short of fantastic.

The end result will be in your earbuds on Oct. 29 and subsequent Mondays after that, in the form of Lethal Lit - a six-episode scripted podcast that presents listeners with a new, fictional "true crime" story, starring Tig Torres, a feisty NY teen who finds herself back in her hometown of Hollow Falls, where she must join forces with her new friends to face off against the perils of modern high school life, and a gruesome series of murders perpetrated by the Lit Killer - a serial murderer whose crimes echo stories ripped from the pages of English literature.

Lethal Lit is a suspenseful, chilling mystery that introduces listeners to a fun, engaging and memorable cast of characters on a dangerous journey to uncover the truth behind a decade-old case....https://boingboing.net
