About My Life Is Murder TV Show
The wildly popular and Acorn TV subscriber driver My Life is Murder returns with retired detective and sourdough superstar Alexa Crowe (Lawless) in 10 new episodes facing a raft of fascinating, powerful and surprising suspects - from eccentric billionaires and grieving florists to tango dancers and fiery fashionistas. The only thing they have in common is that none of them are expecting Alexa's unique brand of crime solving... but they'll quickly learn that you underestimate her at your own risk. Her small 'found family' of fierce supporters, friends and fellow investigators are back: partner-in-crime-solving, Madison (Ebony Vagulans), charismatic detective Harry (Rawiri Jobe), and café owner Reuben (Joe Naufahu, Game of Thrones) - and that's before her actual family members turn up to add their own drama and chaos. My Life is Murder is executive produced by Lucy Lawless, Claire Tonkin, Rachel Antony, Nicky Davies Williams, Pilar Perez and Don Klees.
