“Clever… a show that’s fun and light entertainment, enhanced by well-written mysteries and performances that don’t take themselves seriously”
Building on the warmth, intrigue and humor of its acclaimed Australian series, My Life Is Murder moves to Auckland, New Zealand for its new 10-episode season.
Alexa (Lucy Lawless, Xena: Warrior Princess, Top of the Lake) finds herself back in her home country for the first time in years and can’t help herself when she is asked to look into a bizarre unsolved murder. Joined again by her partner-in-crime-solving, Madison Feliciano (Ebony Vagulans, The Furies, Doctor Doctor), as well as series newcomers, the charismatic detective Harry (Rawiri Jobe, The Brokenwood Mysteries, Shortland Street) and café owner Reuben (Joe Naufahu, Game of Thrones), she quickly finds herself investigating other murder mysteries in surprising, glamorous worlds filled with intriguing characters who are hiding dangerous and deadly secrets.
Season 2 reunites star Lucy Lawless with several former castmates from her most iconic series, including Anna Hutchison (Spartacus), Graham Vincent (Spartacus), Jay Ryan (Beauty and the Beast, It Chapter Two, Mary Kills People) and Bruce Hopkins (Lord of the Rings, Xena: Warrior Princess). They will be joined by an array of acclaimed actors in guest star roles including the beloved William Shatner (Star Trek, Haven), Martin Henderson (Grey’s Anatomy, The Gloaming), Bill Bailey (Black Books, Ralph Spaced), Michelle Ang (Fear The Walking Dead, Triple 9), Sara Wiseman (A Place to Call Home, Rake), Matt Whelan (Narcos: Mexico, The Sounds) and popular drag performers Kita Mean and Amanduh La Hor, among several other guest stars yet to be announced.

From the creative force behind Touched by an Angel comes a wonderful combination of romance, comedy and drama that follows the lives of four postal detectives who transform themselves into a team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office and into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow always on time.
The team includes charming Oliver O’Toole (Eric Mabius, Scandal, Ugly Betty), a genius postal detective and the group’s leader; new team member Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth, The Kennedys), a technophile who brings 21st century sensibility to the group; free-spirited “girl next door” Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe, Smallville) who has a photographic memory; and lovable Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson, Primeval New World), a master in conventional research methods.
