Harry Wild

Literature professor Harriet "Harry" Wild (Jane Seymour) is adjusting to retirement when she's mugged.

While recovering at the home of her son, a detective in the Dublin police, Harry gleans a clue for his current case.

But when she's rebuffed, Harry decides to solve the crime herself.

Recruiting an unlikely young sidekick, she finds a new path as a private investigator.

In the series premiere, "When Harry Met Fergus": While recovering at the home of her son, senior detective Charlie, Harry looks at his files and realises his latest investigation bears similarities to an obscure Elizabethan play.

After Charlie dismisses her insights, she decides to find the killer - with aid from a surprising source.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Samurai Plague Doctor Kills for Kicks": Due to their new notoriety, Harry and Fergus are approached by a woman desperate to find out how her husband died.

Although reluctant to get involved, Harry's interest is soon piqued.

When she and Fergus uncover a deadly gambling operation, Harry turns over the evidence to Charlie, vowing to stay out of it.

Unfortunately, the killers have other ideas.

An American Murder Mystery: The Staircase

Michael claims it was a tragic accident.

Investigators, however, fear something far more sinister is at play and direct their attention to him.

Did Michael Peterson murder his wife?

The three-part special event provides a unique and comprehensive look at the death of Kathleen Peterson, exploring the shocking theories, critical evidence and surprising secrets that thrust this case into the national spotlight.

The three-episode event features all-new and exclusive interviews with key players in the case, most notably Candace Zamperini, Kathleen's sister and Brent Wolgamott, a male escort whom Michael was emailing with at the time of the crime, as well as legal experts, jurors and reporters who covered the case from the very beginning.

Definitely watching The Staircase documentary to see if I agree with my previous verdict.

I've watched the Toni Collette drama series and concluded he's guilty so I'm quizzy to see if I feel the same with this.
