Jill Scott's New HBO Series


I've been waiting for HBO to post the trailer of this show. I heard a while ago that Jill Scott would be starring in a new series, but there wasn't much info out there about it.

Anyway, here's the trailer for "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency." I'll definitely be tuning in. I like Jill, and HBO has a rep for great series. Plus, like "the Wire," this will be one of the few shows on TV with a predominantly Black cast. Anika Noni Rose plays Jill's sidekick. (She's also the voice of Disney's first Black Princess.) HBO also gets props for airing a drama that's located in Botswana. It will be nice to see some Blacks in another setting other than "urban."
Will you watch?

Thanks for the reminder! I've been wondering when this show was coming on. Looking forward to seeing Jill. I think she has the chops to be a pretty good actress.
