Acorn Goes Wild About Jane Seymour

The latest ’90s TV star to resurface as a sleuth on Acorn TV is Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman’s Jane Seymour.

In Harry Wild, which will premiere on April 4, she plays Harriet “Harry” Wild, a retiring foul-mouthed, cigarette smoking, whiskey drinking university literature professor whose son, Charlie, is a senior detective (Guilt’s Kevin Ryan).

While recuperating at his home after being mugged, she investigates one of his murder cases when she notices it shares striking similarities to an obscure Elizabethan play.

When her path crosses that of her mugger, Fergus Reid (Whitstable Pearl’s Rohan Nedd), she recognises the troubled teen’s potential and enlists him as her sidekick in new mysteries involving a fledgling serial killer with a Dostoevsky fixation, gamblers running snuff games, and a wealthy Dublin matriarch strangled during a video call — all of which complicates Charlie’s work life.

Stuart Graham (The Fall) and Amy Huberman (Finding Joy) co-star.

Two new episodes of the eight-episode series will stream weekly every Monday through April 25.

“From the first moment I read the script, I fell in love with Harry Wild,” the 70-year-old Seymour, who was most recently seen in The Kominsky Method, said when the Dubin-set series was announced.

Harry Wild is the latest series of Acorn TV’s growing staple of mystery dramas led by strong female investigators – a category that has long resonated with our audiences,” said Catherine Mackin, managing director of Acorn Media Enterprises.
