THE SHOW TITLE.
Named for the commuter bus that runs along the island’s streets into San Francisco, the O Line Mysteries are told by a charming group of local actors looking to get a laugh and to spin a good yarn.
Comprised mainly of a rotating cast showing off their voice talents, the show provides weekly entertainment to commuters everywhere in the world.
The series picks up a year after Lorna and Sally traded coasts from Manhattan to San Francisco, which is about the time it took them to decompress from the hustling big city. Now fully engaged by the charming island city, Lorna, who is in need of constant “input” from her surroundings to write her online content, finds herself in continuous hot water with the local detectives.
Named after the original island inhabitants, the Ohlone Tribe, the island is a chameleon of sorts. The island was a farming community, a summer resort town, and a Navy base during WWII. Like most small towns it has stories to tell, from both it’s past and present. As Lorna gets to know her new home she stumbles on the mysteries, new and old.
