    Any Day Now tells the story of a friendship between two successful women in Birmingham, Alabama. M.E. is a writer, wife, mother and grandmother; Rene is a single attorney who specializes in civil rights law. Through flashbacks in each episode, we see how their personalities and their friendship developed in the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. The show's theme song is "Any Day Now", which was written in the 1960s by Burt Bacharach and Bob Hilliard, and was a huge hit for Chuck Jackson, who recorded it in 1962. Lori Petty sings the version heard on the show.moreless

    Private detective Veronica Clare is just like the traditional private eyes of the 1940's, except that she is: (1) non-violent (2) elegant (3) female But the classic film-noir style is there, complete with voice-over narration. Little is known of her past. Her headquarters is a jazz club in LA's Chinatown. All but one of the episodes were later combined and re-released as TV movies: Episodes #1 and #9 were combined and called "Affairs with Death". Episodes #2 and #8 were combined and called "Naked Hearts". Episodes #3 and #5 were combined and called "Deadly Minds". Episodes #4 and #6 were combined and called "Slow Violence".moreless
