AIRDATE | Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries
After months of promo’s, the Seven Network has confirmed an airdate for the highly anticipated crime series Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries.
Geraldine Hakewill (Wanted), Joel Jackson (Peter Allen: Not The Boy Next Door, Deadline Gallipoli) and Catherine McClements (Wentworth) headline this spin-off of one of Australia’s most loved and successful series.
Set in swinging ’60s Melbourne, Hakewill portrays the gorgeously reckless Peregrine Fisher who inherits a windfall when the famous aunt she never knew, Phryne Fisher, goes missing over the highlands of New Guinea.
Detective James Steed (Jackson) is a smart, ambitious cop constantly hamstrung by the rigid leadership of his immoral boss but respectful of the hierarchy. Instantly attracted to Peregrine, he’s dazzled by her audacity and often drawn into her mad plans. With a mind like a steel trap, and ex-member of WW2 Special Forces,
Birdie (McClements) is the ‘M’ of The Adventuresses’ operation and club president. A tough woman of high expectations, she recognises the ’60s are changing and they need new blood – but having Peregrine under her wing is also a way of staying connected to the old friend she misses desperately.
The series is produced by Every Cloud Productions with the assistance of Screen Australia and Film Victoria for Channel Seven.
