I would like to start learning Nach yomi (one or two perakim a day) but I don't just want to read the Hebrew/English since I will not end up with a proper understanding as to what is actually taking place (according to the Torah shebe'al peh). I also don't want to learn with one of the perushim as this will take too long for the amount of time I can dedicate to this. That leaves me looking for a resource that can give me the highlights without taking too much time to go through. Perhaps a perek by perek summary with essential explanations would help alot. Any suggestions?

The best solution I have found is a new book by Adir Press (distributed by Feldheim) called "Journey Through Nach". It goes through every perek in Nach and provides a short summary based on the words and meforshim. It's a great read! Highly recommended.
Other option are the summaries written on www.shortvort.com which are also very good but I don't know if they cover the entire Nach
I have recorded a brief Hebrew-English translation with all the Rashis succinctly woven into the translation. In addition, anything which is difficult to understand I add additional comments from other commentaries.
One of my goals is that unlike many nach shiurim I aim to translate accurately every word. All previous Shiurim are available in a google drive folder. I am about to start Yeshaya. Feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
