The unlikely detective duo of “Shakespeare and Hathaway: Private Investigators” return to Arizona PBS for a second season beginning Thursday, Sept. 5, at 9 p.m. on Arizona PBS. This quirky crime drama is packed with corpses, comedy and cracking mysteries.
Frank and Lu are not alike. Frank is a talented and decidedly grumpy detective, with great gut instincts. Lu is an ex-hairdresser with masses of charm and a keen sense of trouble. The two shouldn’t work together yet, somehow, they do.
The highly unlikely and hugely entertaining detective duo are back on the case. They’re working in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. The streets are picturesque, thronging with tourists – and positively crammed with cunning criminals, tricksters and fraudsters.
The local tennis club is a picture of middle class good manners, yet foul play festers behind the scenes. A pedigree pooch disappears overnight and the personal trainer and stylist emerge as prime suspects. Fraud, extortion, vice, identity theft and corruption all lurk beneath the surface of this seemingly lovely location.
Frank and Lu must learn to trust each other, even if they don’t always like each other. Welcome to the birthplace of the Bard, where fact is stranger than fiction and low life criminals get caught up in deliciously high drama.
