Episode 1: Koji the Killer

Summary

TV star Harley Carter returns to his hometown of Bishop, Ontario, after a public meltdown in Los Angeles. When his housekeeper of 30 years is accused of murder, he tries to use his experience of playing a detective for eight years to clear her name. Crime drama, starring Jerry O'Connell.

Review

You might have seen publicity photos for the remake of 80s classic Magnum PI recently. It’ll be a while before that gets here, but in the meantime, if you fancy something trying to capture its devil-may-care attitude (but without the short shorts), this might pass muster.

Jerry O’Connell plays Harley Carter, star of a hit US cop show, who after a meltdown is back home in a pretty lakeside town in Ontario. He hooks up with old friends, and gets involved in a murder case involving his housekeepers. It turns out Carter’s more than just a pretty face with a quip for every situation; he has actually learnt something about crime on set. He has a dark back story, too.
