NEW MYSTERY TV MOVIE
AGATHA AND THE MIDNIGHT MURDERS TO AIR NEXT WEEK
|Agatha arrives Wednesday next week!|
London 1940: As the Blitz rages and her future is threatened by fallout from the war, Agatha Christie makes the decision to kill off her most famous creation. After twelve Poirot novels in six years, Agatha should be a rich woman. Instead, she is
struggling to make ends meet: America’s financial
chokehold of Britain has cut off royalties and the tax authorities in
the US and UK are investigating her. Killing her most popular character
in the midst of this turmoil seems almost spiteful. But Agatha,
pragmatic and resourceful as ever, has a plan: she is selling the novel
of Poirot’s death to a private buyer, a superfan who will pay a fortune
to own a piece of history and keep the beloved detective alive.
Fourteen years ago, Agatha met Travis Pickford (Blake Harrison), a charming grifter who
transformed himself from murder suspect to ally. Who better to help
broker a dubious deal than a man for whom skirting the law is career
necessity? Having agreed a commission with Agatha, Travis arranges a
late night exchange at an infamous London hotel.

I love that her stories are still so popular.ReplyDelete
This is, of course, an invented story about her :)Delete
I guess the film is as interesting as the story in the novel.ReplyDelete
Sometimes there are films whose work is not as good as the story of the book.
This sounds like something I'd watch! I wonder if I could find it on Prime or Netflix.. HmmmReplyDelete
Probably not, I imagine it will end up on Britbox, but maybe also on PBS.Delete
I'm pretty sure these air on PBS here, Jax.ReplyDelete
Yes, me too.Delete
Do you need cable for PBS?Delete
Yes, but I imagine they have apps too or something like that, not that I'd know....Delete
It should be on all channels as it's Public Access Station. Available to all, even those who don't have cable.ReplyDelete
As far as I got it, Jax does not have cable nor regular TV antenna :) just Netflix. So no NBC, ABC, CBS for her either...Delete
You don't have to have anything but a television set to get PBS here. We get like 5 channels for free and PBS is one of them. I couldn't tell her what station it is in New York though. She'd just have to flip through to find it.ReplyDelete
Such fun, most of our state frequency networks are garbage that serves our Pussylips dictator in his agenda and propaganda.Delete
