HBO Considering Continuing The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency as Made-for-Television Movies

No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (HBO)

We've known for some time that HBO's plans for its short-lived series The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency from 2009 did not include renewal for a second season. However, we didn't know until today that the cable network is considering at least two made-for-television movies based on the character of Mma Ramotswe (played by Jill Scott in the series).

During this week's Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour, HBO executives stated that they have received scripts that they are considering for the stand-alone films.

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is adapted from a series of novels by Alexander McCall Smith, which feature Precious Ramotswe as Botswana's only female private detective. The most recent of these, The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party, was published earlier this year. We had the pleasure of reviewing it, saying, "The mysteries in this series are enjoyed more for the delightful characters, their respective life experiences, and, to a lesser extent, the unusual setting in which the storylines play out, than for their crime plots, which are typically of the non-violent sort. Readers who have come to enjoy the entries in this series will not be disappointed with this one." (Mysterious Reviews, March 2011)
