Plot Summary

After her father's death, sensible and cheerful Mma Precious Ramotswe sells her inherited cattle and opens the country's only female-owned detective agency. She hires Botswana Secretarial College graduate (97% in the final exams!) Grace Makutsi as her assistant. Together they solve problems big and small with their wisdom, big hearts, and endless cups of red-bush tea. Meanwhile, Mma Ramotswe's best friend, mechanic Mr. JLB Matekoni, hopes for a chance to win her heart... Based on Alexander McCall Smith's best-selling book series. Written by L. Hamre

Trivia In the course of trying to gain weight before playing the role of Precious Ramotswe, Jill Scott noticed that she had gained seven pounds in one week (an extremely fast and potentially unhealthy weight gain). Concerned, she went to her doctor and discovered the day before she left for Botswana that she was pregnant. After she finished filming the first season, Scott returned to the US and in April 2009, gave birth to her son, Jett Hamilton Roberts. See more »
