June 05, 2019

The Second Season To Debut One Week After The First Season Finale

Los Angeles, CA: Ahead of the June 15th series premiere, Ovation announced today that the second season of Frankie Drake Mysteries will be coming to the arts network. Set in stylish 1920s Toronto, the mystery series follows the female-only agency Drake Private Detectives, led by the eponymous Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) and her partner Trudy Clarke (Chantel Riley), as they find themselves fighting crime in the age of flyboys, gangsters, rumrunners and speakeasies. Ovation will air back-to-back episodes of Season Two starting on Saturday, July 27 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT.

In a time of change and hopefulness, Frankie and Trudy’s gender is their biggest advantage as they defy expectations and rebel against convention. The Drake Private Detectives work tirelessly on cases that explore every cross-section of Toronto, from gospel church choirs, bathing beauties and the early cinema scene, to the homes and private parties of the city’s elite. Frankie and Trudy’s fearless sense of adventure gets them into all kinds of trouble, but they always manage to find a way out. These amazing ladies are new detectives for a new world–but is the world ready for them?
