UK channel Alibi has been raiding the Australian schedules again, as it picks up the Lucy Lawless fronted crime series My Life is Murder.

The dramedy follows the complex, contrary and compelling investigator Alexa Crowe (Lucy Lawless), who can’t help fighting the good fight – whether it is solving murders or combating the small frustrations of everyday life. Fearless and unapologetic, Alexa’s unique skills and insights into the darker quirks of human nature allow her to provoke, comfort and push the right buttons as she unravels the truth behind the most baffling of crimes.

As Alexa unmasks the hidden passions and dangerous secrets lurking in the energetic, ever-changing city of Melbourne she is ably assisted by ambitious twenty-something Madison Feliciano (Ebony Vagulans – ‘The Furies’) – who is not so quietly learning from the best – and her former boss, Detective Inspector Kieran Hussy (Bernard Curry – ‘Neighbours’, ‘Home and Away’, ‘Wentworth’), who enlists Alexa on his trickiest cased on the understanding it also means he gets to keep an eye on what’s she up to now. And then there’s Alexa’s stubborn cat Captain Thunderbolt… Madison’s nemesis.

Lucy Lawless is, of course, best known for her role as ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’. She also starred in Ronald D. Moore’s ‘Battlestar Galactica’, and the various ‘Spartacus’ series. More recently she starred in the much loved ‘Parks and Recreation’, ‘Salem’, and horror-comedy ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’.

No news on a premiere date on Alibi yet for My Life is Murder, but we presume it will be later this year. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
