John From Cincinnati was created by the acclaimed David Milch (responsible for HBO's Deadwood) and Kem Nunn (the surf-noir novelist) who make John From Cincinnati feel like the Imperial Beach of television - not quite in this world, but not quite out of it.  read more...

The Place:
The indicate is perfectly located in Imperial Beach (IB), California - the last stretch of surf territory before entering Mexico, and an spot which captures that desolate, end-of-the-world feel. It's hard to tell whether it's the perfect place for the Apocalypse or a miracle. The cast is spread out around the territory, convening at one major space - the Snug Harbor Motel. The other regular locales include the Yost home, the surf shop (also owned by the Yosts), Kai's trailer, Bill's home, the coffee shop, and the motel where Linc and Cass are staying.  read more...

The Family:
John From Cincinnati focuses on a (somewhat) traditional family. Enter the Yosts, the nexus of the IB failures, misfits, and shady characters. The three generations include Mitch and Cissy Yost, their son Butchie, and his son, Shaun. While it is obvious Mitch and Butchie each had their own reign in the surfing world (and Shaun, only 14, who has Butchie's surf skills is likely to have his too), now the Yosts face an onslaught of dreadful luck, anger, addiction, and pain. But there is hope and that hope lies with John.  read more...

The Stranger:
John Monad (From Cincinnati). John Monad is a stranger, who isn't really from Cincinnati, and he is something else. After his arrival, the Yosts are touched by something otherworldly - something greater than anyone of them can imagine - and John seems to be the source. John's presence has already broken boundaries of time, space, and logic and one can only imagine what's next.  read more...
