“Vivacious” – Indiewire
“Clever crime fare” – The New York Times

A spinoff of the wildly popular Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, the swinging 1960s crime series, Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, follows the fearless and spirited Peregrine Fisher (Logie Award-nominated Geraldine HakewillWantedWakefield), the niece of world-class adventuress and private detective Phryne Fisher, as she inherits a windfall from her famous aunt and sets out to become an exceptional sleuth in her own right.

As murders continue to plague the streets of 1964 Melbourne, daring detective Peregrine Fisher tackles her trickiest assignment yet: juggling her career, the busy life of an Adventuress and her romance with Detective James Steed (Joel JacksonPeter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door, Deadline Gallipoli). Playful but never mocking, exuberant but never naive, Peregrine Fisher continues her mission to do the legacy of her famous aunt justice, to find her way in changing times and to make a difference in the world.

In the second series, while Peregrine investigates cases at an air hostess school, a dog show and a bowling alley, Birdie Birnside (Catherine McClementsWentworth) reignites her spying career with an old flame and Violetta (Louisa Mignone) and Samuel (Toby Truslove) struggle to contain their passion. Despite their busy lives, the gang have Peregrine’s back – because the modern road to happy-ever-after isn’t always rosy and staying true to oneself can sometimes mean hurting those you love.
