10 has released a first look at its upcoming murder mystery from CJZ, My Life Is Murder, featuring Lucy Lawless.
While a date is yet to be confirmed I would tip this to succeed Five Bedrooms in a few weeks time.
Looking for a new murder mystery series with a complex, charismatic and compelling investigator? Well look no further than 10’s new drama My Life Is Murder.
Starring international feminist icon and pop culture legend Lucy Lawless in her first Australian lead role, My Life Is Murder is an irreverent mystery of the week series, featuring 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.
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? Well, it’s kind of a fascinating story, although one of the few Alexa doesn’t like telling.
My Life Is Murder also stars NIDA graduate Ebony Vagulans as ambitious millennial data analyst Madison Feliciano and will feature a stellar line-up of guests including Danielle Cormack, Don Hany, Lisa Hensley, Magda Szubanski, Nadine Garner and Dilruk Jayasinha.
My Life Is Murder is a CJZ production for Network 10. Principle production investment from Network 10 in association with Screen Australia. Financed with support from Film Victoria.
