AMC Networks’ Acorn TV is announcing the commissioning with Acorn Media Enterprises of the 8 x 60-minute series from production and distribution company Dynamic Television (Trapped, Madiba, Van Helsing).

Harriet “Harry” Wild (Seymour) is a retiring university literature professor who is finding herself at one of life’s crossroads. Jolted from a mugging, she reluctantly agrees to recover in the home of her son, Charlie, a senior police detective. Charlie’s family does their best to tolerate Harry’s inscrutable ways, but Harry speaks her mind. Despite Charlie’s strong objections and warnings, Harry starts to interfere in her son’s particularly bafﬂing murder case when she notices the murderer has followed a pattern from a well-known play.
When she successfully catches the killer by putting herself at great risk in the process, she ﬁnds a new lust for life. Harry and her protégé, Fergus, a troubled teen in whom Harry sees great potential where others see only a thug, quickly find new mysteries to solve. Harry’s expertise at her new passion brings her into direct conﬂict with Charlie, who needs nothing less than his mother causing trouble at work!
