Exciting news for our followers “down under”: Australian network Seven have announced the addition of Miss Scarlet and The Duke to their 2020 schedule at its annual 7Upfronts in Sydney today. No exact date has been given yet for the series, which is expected to air on the American PBS network in 2020, but – as always – we will keep you informed as soon as we find out more!
MISS SCARLET AND THE DUKE
Set in the same 1880s London society that gave rise to Jack the Ripper, this British detective drama features a fearless, independent heroine played by Kate Phillips (Peaky Blinders, The Crown). With her inquisitive mind, Miss Scarlet has always been more interested in running her late father’s detective agency than behaving like a proper lady. But nothing has prepared her for the dangers she is about to face as a woman in the murder investigation trade. From prolific British writer Rachael New comes this fresh crime drama about the first ever female detective in 19th century London. MISS SCARLET AND THE DUKE is produced by Element 8 Entertainment.
