When a midnight-show radio host receives an anonymous hint about a mysterious murder, he sets out to find the real killer and needs to convince the police they’re after the wrong person.
The premise has possibilities except there does not appear to be a compelling dramatic reason for the radio host to pursue the anonymous tip. Mere curiosity isn’t enough. What is his personal stake? What’s the trip wire in his mind that the tip sets off that compels him to find the real killer? Why is he the only one who cares enough to follow up on the tip?
There is a book with a similar concept.
Here’s the logline of “Intent To Kill” By James Grippando:
Ryan James, a former minor-league baseball player turned sports radio host, receives an anonymous tip about the unsolved hit-and-run accident that killed his wife three years prior live on the air, but the information points to a powerful New England family, and puts Ryan, his wife’s brother “Babes,” and the case’s prosecutor in danger.
