The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency8 pm/ET HBONever underestimate a woman's intuition. An ebullient Jill Scott stars as Precious Ramotswe, a woman who opens the titular agency after her father dies. In the breezy, two-hour premiere episode — which was written by Richard Curtis (Bridget Jones, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and the late Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) and directed by Minghella — Precious sets up shop and investigates all sorts of female-centric malfeasance. The postcard-pretty series, based on the best-selling novels by Alexander McCall Smith, was filmed entirely on location in Botswana. A nearly unrecognizable Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls) costars as Precious' odd assistant.Read on for previews of Amazing Race 14, United States of Tara, Masterpiece Classic and The Simpsons.
