By John C. Alsedek:
We originally recorded "Essence" on the same day as the pilot episode, "Cool Air." However, "Essence" was not the first original script we wrote that ended up on SUSPENSE, as about a half-dozen had already been done for an earlier show I’d done on public access TV back in 2009. Confusing, right? Hahaha.
Episode 12: "Essence"
Stars: Dana Perry-Hayes, Skyler Caleb, Adrienne Wilkinson, Elizabeth Gracen, and Steve Moulton
The dysfunctional family of an elderly perfume mogul gathers at her deathbed. But little do they know just how far she is willing to go in order to protect her legacy.
Written especially for SUSPENSE by John C. Alsedek & Dana Perry-Hayes.
SUSPENSE writer, producer, and radio-drama aficionado John C. Alsedek shares the history of early radio and television and the impact it has made on the world of entertainment in his ongoing series for Flapper Press.
