HBO premieres the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency tonight at 8:00pm EST.
The series stars Jill Scott, Anika Noni Rose, Lucian Msamati, Desmond Dube, Colin Salmon and Idris Elba. The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency is based on the bestselling books by Alexander McCall Smith and co-written and executive produced by Richard Curtis and the late Anthony Minghella. According to the HBO site:
The series chronicles the adventures of Precious Ramotswe (Jill Scott), the cheerful, eminently sensible proprietor of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, located in the Kgale Hill Shopping Center on the outskirts of Gaborone. Aided by her efficient yet high-strung secretary Grace Makutsi (Anika Noni Rose), Precious investigates a variety of cases, helping townspeople solve mysteries in their lives, from missing children to philandering husbands to con-artist scams.
The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency made its debut as a full length pilot on BBC in Great Britain last year. You can check out the official BBC website here.
