The Overtime’s ‘Good Samaritan’ series returns – just in time for Christmas

It’s the latest installment in the series of noir mysteries written by Scott McDowell and directed by Andy Thornton.

In our fourth installment, "Hell and Back" a year has passed since the events of "All Good Things". Detective Winters has quit the force and is now scratching out a living as a private investigator and solving cases with his dead partner, Blake. When a mysterious woman hires them to find a strange object, they find themselves in over their heads and targets on their backs.

Beginning with The Good Samaritan in 2008 at the Overtime’s West Avenue location, Mcdowell and Thornton continued the series as the premiere offering at The Overtime’s Blue Star location in January of 2010 with The Hard Bargain and followed it up in 2011 with the third installment, All Good Things. Now the series continues in its fourth installment and third location.

The first three installments followed San Francisco detectives Blake (played by McDowell) and Winters (Michael Burger) – and this fourth installment continues to follow Winters after he has left the police force behind and become a private eye.

The story of Hell and Back doesn’t require any knowledge of the prior chapters. Audiences will be able to jump right in and enjoy the story. But there will certainly be plenty of things to entertain those who have followed the detectives for the last several years. Hell and Back premieres at the Overtime’s new location at 1203 Camden in the Gregg Barrios Theater on December 7th.
