There’s a new brand of justice making it’s mark in 1920’s Toronto

 IT'S THE SERIES PREMIERE OF FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES  ON WLRN-TV! - Set in 1920s Toronto, the all female Drake Private Detectives crack the cases the police don’t dare go near. 

Premiering January 14th, 9pm FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES - Crime Drama - Set in 1920s Toronto, the series follows the adventures of Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) and her partner Trudy Clarke (Chantel Riley) at Drake Private Detectives, the city’s only all-female detective agency, as they find themselves fighting crime in the age of flyboys, gangsters, rum-runners, and speakeasies.

Incorporating a brand of justice that doesn't always follow the law, Frankie and Trudy investigate mysteries and crimes that either the police refuse to take on, or that their clients cannot take to the police at all. Against a backdrop of social change, radical politics and jazz music, the series is immersed in both the real Toronto of the 1920s and the world of mystery and suspense.  

 

In the series premiere MOTHER OF PEARL  Frankie is named a suspect in a jewel heist.  As she diligently  works to clear her name, she ends up partnering with a surprising ally.
