THE NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY takes audiences to Africa in the year's best example of the transportive nature of television. Inspired by the stories of Alexander McCall Smith, the show's gentle and genuine tales are captured on location with immersive imagery, music and an international cast that anchors each episode in authenticity. Here "simple" is not "simplistic," and this wonderfully well-realized storytelling not only delivers as entertainment, but plants the seeds for the acceptance of a greater global perspective.
