Recipes for Love and Murder

A South African / Scottish co-production murder mystery television series based on Sally Andrew's novel Recipes for Love and Murder: A Tannie Maria Mystery, about a small-town recipe advice columnist who turns detective to solve a horrific crime.

When a woman seeking advice about an abusive husband is found dead, recipe advice columnist Tannie Maria and her colleague, rookie journalist Jessie, spring into action, determined to solve this small town Karoo murder and catch the killer.

Big city cop Khaya and his team of local police officers always find themselves just slightly behind the detecting duo, as the investigation takes us through an array of unlikely suspects.

Maria Purvis (nicknamed Tannie Maria, meaning Auntie Maria in Afrikaans), is a middle-aged advice columnist who moved to Scotland as a child along with her parents and returned 10 years ago to South Africa after her husband died.

She now dishes out help and recipes via the local gazette in the imaginary South African town of Eden, in the beautiful region of the Karoo.

Mostly keeping to herself, focusing on food, gardening and showing kindness to others, she is often thought of as an old lady before her time.

But when Martine, a woman who writes to Maria about her abusive husband, is found dead, Maria joins forces with a local, risk-taking, rookie journalist, Jessie September (played by newcomer Kylie Fisher), to solve the small-town murder and catch the killer - before the local police finds more victims.

The series stars Maria Doyle Kennedy as the empathetic, accomplished and complicated Maria; as well as Tony Kgoroge who plays Khaya Meyer, the local Chief Detective.

The series also stars Elton Landrew as Constable Piet and Arno Greeff as Warrant Officer Regardt Snyman, Jennifer Steyn as the editor of the local paper and Lee Duru as Grace, a domestic worker whose story shakes up the town.

The series was filmed in Cape Town, in the semi-arid region of the Karoo and in Scotland.

Kristen Schaal: Live at the Fillmore

In her first Comedy Central one-hour special, Schaal is not afraid to go blue at times (which is shop talk for explicit).

She will talk about taints. She will perform her magician's assistant audition.

She may even surprise the audience with a special guest: her dancing horse.

She kills a genie just to steal his clothes, foresees her own death as a beloved hobo and performs her harrowing kitchen utensil drama, "Lonely Fire."

Known to many as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and as an eccentric fan on Flight of the Conchords, Kristen Schaal unleashes her comedic wit upon San Francisco.
