Award-winning actress Essie Davis (The Babadook, The Slap) stars as Miss Phryne Fisher, a glamorous "lady detective" with a flair for fashion and a knack for crime-solving. Armed with her pearl-handled revolver and vivacious charm, Phryne tackles the toughest cases 1920s Melbourne has to offer, to the bemused exasperation of handsome Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page, The Secret Life of Us). Aided by her maid, "Dot" Williams (Ashleigh Cummings, Tomorrow, When the War Began), and Constable Hugh Collins (Hugo Johnstone-Burt, San Andreas), Phryne sashays through back-alley jazz clubs and Melbourne high society, fighting injustice and leaving a trail of admirers in her wake.
