Congrats to Jill Scott for landing a role in the highly anticipated HBO series, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency! The soulful songstress was asked to take on the role after starring as lead heroine, Precious Ramotswe, in the 2007 Anthony Minghella-directed TV film, which also aired on HBO. Adapted from Alexander McCall Smith’s best-selling novels, the 13-episode series follows the fortunes of the only woman-owned detective agency in the African nation of Botswana.
“So I’m looking for a nice house in the city, and then I will find an office and start my own business. I’m going to open a detective agency...”
- Precious Ramotswe
Ahhhh…the sincerely spoken words of a woman after our own hearts!
A fly female entrepreneur playing the role of a fly female entrepreneur? This one is definitely In Her Shoes approved. From singer, songwriter, poet/author, actress, to soon-to-be wife and mother, this exceptional lady is truly the Jill of all trades.
