Lauren Lee Smith stars as Frankie Drake - a go-getting gal who is determined to take advantage of the new freedom offered to women. Her gender is, in fact, her biggest advantage - who would ever think a female could be a detective?!
As a woman in a man's world, Frankie defies convention and has a knack for solving cases with her uncanny intuition and deduction skills. But she's no cop - her brand of justice doesn't always follow the law.
Together with her partner Trudy Clarke, played by 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. Frankie and Trudy's fearless sense of adventure get them into all kinds of trouble, but they always manage to find a way out.
In a time of change, Frankie is a woman ahead of everyone. She's a new detective for a new world. But is the world ready for her? Look out for Lewis's Laurence Fox guest-starring as Greg Miller in episode one, The Pilot.
