Acorn TV announced today the premiere date for Harry Wild, the streamer’s new Original mystery series starring Jane Seymour.
Acorn TV Original series Harry Wild, a murder mystery thriller starring Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning actress Jane Seymour (The Kominsky Method, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman), 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.
Jane Seymour plays 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 particularly baffling murder case. When Harry notices the murder shares striking similarities to an obscure Elizabethan play, she begins to interfere in the case.
Then Harry crosses paths (again) with her mugger, Fergus Reid (Rohan Nedd, Whitstable Pearl), but this time she sees great potential in the troubled teen and, instead of turning him in, enlists him as her sidekick. Following her successful, albeit ill-advised, involvement in Charlie’s homicide case, Harry discovers a new lust for life. She 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).
A Dynamic Television Production, Harry Wild is created and written by David Logan (To Olivia, Lost Christmas). The executive producers are Dan March, Klaus Zimmermann, James Gibb, James Flynn, Morgan O’Sullivan, David McLoughlin, Jane Seymour, David Logan, Jo Spain, Bea Tammer, Catherine Mackin, Claus Wunn, and Frank Seyberth. Acorn Media Enterprises and ZDF co-produce the series.
