For twenty years, the radio anthology series 'SUSPENSE' featured Hollywood's biggest stars in stories of the mysterious and terrifying. Since it left the air in 1962, there hasn't been a show like it; even the fondly-remembered 'CBS Radio Mystery Theatre' was only a shadow of what 'SUSPENSE' had been at its very best.
Join us as we revive radio's greatest-ever anthology series, featuring our company of Hollywood actors, plus some surprising guest stars. We'll be producing original radio dramas, adapting works of literature, and recreating classic radio programs, all with an appropriately retro touch. The first thirteen episodes are now available for instant MP3 download. So join us for another study in...SUSPENSE!
