Today Acorn TV released the official trailer for Harry Wild, the streamer’s new Irish Original mystery series starring award-winning actress Jane Seymour.
In Harry Wild, Emmy® and Golden Globe® awards winner Jane Seymour (The Kominsky Method, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman) stars as Harriet “Harry” Wild, a retiring university literature professor who is finding herself at one of life’s crossroads. Jolted from a mugging, she reluctantly agrees to recover in the home of her son, Charlie (Kevin Ryan, Guilt, Copper), a senior police detective, who at the moment is investigating a baffling murder case.
When Harry notices the murder shares striking similarities to an obscure Elizabethan play, she begins to get involved (read: interfere) in the case, and discovers a new lust for life in the process.
After Harry crosses paths (again) with her mugger, Fergus Reid (Rohan Nedd, Whitstable Pearl), she sees him differently this time, noticing great potential in the troubled teen. So, instead of turning him in, she enlists him as her sidekick. Harry and Fergus quickly find new mysteries to solve, including ones involving a fledgling serial killer with a Dostoevsky fixation, gamblers running snuff games, and a wealthy Dublin matriarch strangled during a video call.
Harry’s new passion brings her into direct conflict with Charlie, who could really do without his mother causing trouble at work.
Costars in the series include Stuart Graham (The Fall, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Amy Huberman (Finding Joy, Striking Out).
Harry Wild, an Acorn TV Original, premieres in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand on Monday, April 4. The eight-episode series will launch with two episodes, and new episodes will arrive weekly through April 25.
