The first season of the female-driven crime mystery series “Frankie Drake Mysteries” will be released on DVD Jan. 8.
The series premiered digitally on Prime Video Channels and PBS Passport.
Set against a backdrop of social change, radical politics and jazz music, the series follows Toronto’s only female private detective Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) in the 1920s as she takes on the cases the police don’t want or can’t handle. Her gender is her biggest advantage. Along with her partner Trudy (Chantel Riley), Frankie and the Drake Detective Agency take on cases of all shapes and sizes, from airplanes and booze running to American G-men, Communists and union busters.
