DESCRIPTION:
(from Ovation TV's press release, February 2020) Ovation, America's only arts network, has announced the premiere date for the third season of Frankie Drake Mysteries. The new season will premiere on Ovation on Saturday, April 4th at 7pm ET / 4pm PT, promising a slate of new adventures as the ladies of Drake Private Detectives take on more challenging cases and face off against some impressive foes. Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) and Trudy Clarke (Chantel Riley) continue to rely on Mary Shaw (Rebecca Liddiard) and Flo (Sharron Matthews), who are always ready to lend a hand snooping through police files or sneaking a peek at an autopsy report. Mary's newfound confidence at the police station, and in life, leaves her frustrated with her status as a morality officer and pushes her towards exciting new professional goals. Meanwhile Flo finishes her in-class portion of medical school and looks forward to her clinical training in-hospital, all while juggling a long-distance beau and the varied demands of Drake Detective cases. As Trudy's love life with Bill Peters (Romaine Waite) heats up, she also excels at her investigative work, taking on some truly hair-raising risks as she works to solve cases. And finally, Frankie continues to lead the team with aplomb and ingenuity, while exploring a romantic connection with boxer Moses Page (Emmanuel Kabongo). From cases in London, England with new mystery novelist friend Agatha Christie, to a mermaid-themed jazz club, to swanky Toronto private schools, to busy telephone exchanges filled with busybody operators, the latest season of Frankie Drake Mysteries promises a rousing good time.
