“Acorn TV today revealed the official trailer for the murder mystery thriller series wild harry with Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Seymour (The Kominsky Method, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman), who is also a co-executive producer of the show.

Two new episodes of the eight-episode series will follow each week every Monday until April 25, 2022.
Jane Seymour stars as Harriet “Harry” Wild, a retired college literature professor who finds herself at one of life’s crossroads. Shaken by an assault, she reluctantly agrees to recover at the home of her son, Charlie (Kevin Ryan, Guilt, Copper), a police detective. Harry begins to meddle in a particularly baffling murder case Charlie is investigating when she notices the murder bears striking similarities to an obscure Elizabethan play. When his path crosses that of his attacker, Fergus Reid (Rohan Nedd, Whitstable Pearl), Harry sees great potential in the troubled teenager and, instead of reporting him, enlists him as his sidekick. Following his successful, if misguided, involvement in the case, Harry discovers a new lust for life. She and Fergus soon uncover new mysteries, including those involving a rookie serial killer with a Dostoyevsky fixation, gamblers running snuff games, and a wealthy Dublin matriarch strangled in a video call. Harry’s new passion puts her in direct conflict with Charlie, who could really do without his mother causing problems at work. Stuart Graham (The Fall, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Amy Huberman (Find joy, cross out) also co-starred.
