Lucy Lawless has bagged her first Australian lead role in My Life Is Murder described as “an irreverent mystery of the week series”.
Lawless stars as the fearless and unapologetic Alexa Crowe (Lucy Lawless) whose unique skills and insights into the darker quirks of human nature, allow her to provoke, comfort and push the right buttons as she unravels the truth behind the most baffling of crimes.
Here’s the trailer:
A brilliant, charismatic and ever-so-slightly scruffy ex-homicide detective, Alexa has built her life around her career. And she’s good at it. Really good. Alexa has always been the sort of investigator who can’t leave an injustice alone. An unsolved murder is like an irritating pebble in her shoe. So, she becomes a particularly vocal pebble for everyone else until she can solve the case and bring justice to the victim.
Cue former colleague and long-time friend Detective Inspector Kieran Hussey (Bernard Curry) who quickly realises it would only be a matter of time until Alexa started sticking her nose in cases that intrigued her. So, he might as well get the benefit of her talent on some of his trickier cases and brings her back to “consult”. A favour for a friend if you will.
But just why did Alexa leave the force?
My Life Is Murder looks set to premiere in Australia in a few weeks’ time.
