No one does sweet and quirky quite like Emmy-nominated actress Ashley Jensen. From her show-stopping role in HBO’s Extras opposite Ricky Gervais to Ugly Betty’s Christina McKinney, Jensen channels the nuances that make audiences connect with vulnerability and imperfection. Now fans will have another opportunity to see her in action when Agatha Raisin, Series 2 premieres November 19, 2018, on Acorn TV with the first of three feature-length films, Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham.
Based on MC Beaton’s bestselling books, the Agatha Raisin television series stars Jensen as the brash, no-nonsense PR executive-turned amateur detective. While Series 1, also available on Acorn TV, followed the story of Agatha Raisin episodically, the new season’s film-driven approach may yield a different audience experience.
