HBO Books ‘No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency’

Mar 10, 2008  •  Post A Comment

HBO is teaming up with the Weinstein Co. and the BBC on drama series “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.”
Based on Alexander McCall Smith’s popular book series, the show will star Grammy Award winner Jill Scott as Precious Ramotswe.
A two-hour pilot was recently filmed in Botswana, directed by Anthony Minghella, with a screenplay by Minghella and Richard Curtis.
HBO has ordered 13 episodes of the series, which will begin filming this summer.


  1. This is ABSOLUTELY my favorite detective series. I fell in love with the series during a car ride to Northern California. I had gotten it from the local library and was blown away not only by the wonderful, engaging storylines and interesting characters, but by the fantastic performance of the voice artist – Lissette LeCat (I believe). It is AWESOME that the BBC should bring this series to life, I only hope that Jill Scott (talented as she is) can do the role of MaRamotswe justice. I will be awaiting the premiere with bated breath!

  2. Great.Looking forward to this series.

  3. Love the books on The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency and have read all eight novels at least twice. Can hardly wait to see it on film. Sincerly hope that the Director and Jill Scott keep with Alexander McCall Smith’s character.
    Even my husband is adicted to MaRamotswe and the other charaters in the novels.

  4. I am not good at reading ficiton, but I like this post.

  7. Lindsay Lohan Should go to Rehabilitate Today. If this seriously isn’t just her endeavoring to avert jail then it is stupid! She actually is gonna head off to jail for thirty days in spite of who the judge is. After all in LA actually 6-8 days!

  8. Lindsay Lohan “I have not ever abused medicines. I never have – never in my life. I have no want to. That’s not who I am,” Lindsay Lohan says. “I’ve admitted to the things which I’ve done – to, you know, dabbling using things and seeking things ’cause I am younger and questioning and considered it’s like, o . k ., ’cause most people were doing it and other people put it before me. And I see what manifested in my life mainly because of it.”

  9. The U.S. Department of State circulated an alert Sunday for United states travelers in European countries to be aware from the heightened prospective for an al-Qaeda terrorist attack. The signal decided not to specify any specific destinations however did pre warn Us citizens abroad of terrorists’ possible “to attack the bus systems together with other tourist infrastructure.” But no army or state infrastructures?
