– HBO is launching a new show shot entirely in Africa. Titled The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, it stars Grammy Award winner Jill Scott and Anika Noni Rose running a detective agency in the country. The series is based on the best-selling book series by Alexander McCall Smith.
For the record, the last drama shot in Africa was CW’s short-lived Life is Wild, which ran during the 2007-08 season.
