Wondering what Jill Scott
is up to? Starting March 29th
, we get to see her unique stage presence as Precious Ramotswe
in the television adaptation of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency
. In this role Jill plays a not so typical private eye
, as she investigates cases ranging from insurance scams to infidelity in her town. Critics have said that Jill Scott “effortlessly captures the blend of wisdom, compassion and understated humor that has made Precious Ramotswe such a popular creation.”
The television drama series, co-produced by the BBC and HBO, and based on the novels of the same name by the late Alexander McCall Smith began production July 2, 2007. The series was filmed on location in Botswana and is the first major film or television production to be undertaken in the country, laying the foundations for future productions by training local cast and crew members that officials hope will generate a local film industry.
First music, then movies, now a television series, I’m sure she has so much more to offer.
