LONDON -- Anthony Minghella and Sydney Pollack will receive posthumous executive producer credits as the BBC moves forward with its six-part TV series based on Alexander McCall-Smith's "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency."

 

The series, officially announced Monday, continues the vision of Minghella, whose feature-length adaptation of the first book premiered to huge success in the U.K. shortly after his death in March. Pollack, whose Mirage Enterprises -- a co-venture with Minghella -- co-produced the telefilm, died two months later.

 

Filming has begun on location in Botswana on six 60-minute episodes, which will chronicle the poignant and amusing adventures of Precious Ramotswe, the proprietor of the only female-owned detective agency in Botswana.

 

Grammy winner Jill Scott will reprise her role as Botswana's first female sleuth and be joined by Anika Noni Rose, Desmond Dube, Lucian Msamati and Paterson Joseph.
