What I do know is that when the cops of this here drama say they're heading down to "Louie's Bar on Lower Broadway" for a little monitor-the-deal-from-the-van-via-CCTV-type surveillance, they're actually headed to Elliston Place.
Speaking of Elliston Place! Elliston Square — the club now known as The End — makes a prominent cameo in this clip (embedded below), and just look at the marquee: Manikenz and a little band called Mammy Namms who would play across the street at Exit/In about a year after this aired. Here's a video!
What little I could find about Nashville Beat comes via IMDB, which serves up this rather tepid description: "A widower LAPD detective comes to Nashville and teams up with his old partner to stop rising gang problems headed by a dangerous man." I was pretty "meh" on the clip until it ended abruptly and I found myself wondering WHO IS THIS DANGEROUS MAN WHO SEEMS SO DANGEROUS?
Any of you Lifers know anything more?
