The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency

HBO makes this really genuine looking African TV series about
The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency in Botswana (and the only one).

Precious Ramotsweis the proprietor of the Agency
Mma Makutsi is her sidekick.

In the pilot they look for an Afro American lady’s son that has been missing for 10 years and some local burglaries.

There is a bit of overplay here and there but there are also some really good actors too. The photo is great. The main characters are likable and interesting.

The series are built on Alexander McCall Smiths novels.

imho the British TV series are a bit more ‘real’ than American but this one feels British.
