DESCRIPTION:
(from Ovation TV's press release, September 2020) Ovation TV, America's only arts network, has announced that it will begin airing the much-loved British detective series Death in Paradise on Thursday nights this fall. The long-running fish-out-of-water drama series stars an international cast including Ben Miller, Sara Martins, Danny John-Jules, Gary Carr, Don Warrington, and Élizabeth Bourgine. The first six seasons of Death in Paradise will air on Ovation TV in four-hour blocks starting Thursday, October 1 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT. At the start of the series, UK detective Richard Poole (Ben Miller) is assigned to investigate the murder of a British police officer on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie. After he successfully finds the murderer, he is ordered by his supervisors to replace the victim and stay on as the head detective inspector of the island, solving new cases as they appear and being the object of many fish-out-of-water jokes. Kris Marshall joins the series as detective Humphrey Goodman in seasons 3-6; Ardal O'Hanlon joins as Jack Mooney in season 6.
