No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

Could Philly's Jill Scott be headed back to "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" at some point?

It's way, way too soon to tell, but HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said Thursday that "we just got in drafts of two scripts" for movies based on the Alexander McCall Smith books that inspired the original HBO series.

"We're taking a look at them now," he added.

Scott starred in the 2009 show as private detective Precious Ramotswe, a Botswanan woman who uses her common sense about people and situations to solve her cases.

Before "No. 1" fans get their hopes up too far, talking about making movies out of HBO-canceled series doesn't always amount to much more than talk.

(See, "Deadwood," deader than the proverbial doornail.)



Ooooooh!

Jill Scott will have to wear padding - she'd dropped a shed-load of weight!

I saw one of these when they were on TV and thought it was very good. :D

I really love the books.

Yeah, but she wasn't when they made the pilot and the first series. :wink:

She looks stunning now.

I always tell people "I'm not fat, I'm plumptious".
