Based on Alexander McCall Smith's passionate and poignant book series, "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" chronicles the adventures of Precious Ramotswe, the eminently sensible and wise proprietor of the only female-owned detective agency in Botswana. Aided by her highly-efficient yet rather peculiar secretary Mma Makutsi, Mma Ramotswe investigates cases, helps people solve problems in their lives, and begins a special friendship with the highly respectable owner of a local garage.
Grammy Award-winning singer Jill Scott stars as series heroine Precious Ramotswe, who has become one of the most beloved characters in international contemporary fiction. Anika Noni Rose ('Dreamgirls') stars as Precious' quirky secretary Mma Makutsi and Lucian Msamati stars as Mma Ramotswe's devoted suitor JLB Matekoni.
