Crime drama series Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators follows the cases of cynical private detective Frank Hathaway and his new inexperienced partner Luc Shakespeare. The duo are based in Stratford-upon-Avon which beneath the picturesque charm lies a hotbed of mystery and intrigue: extramarital affairs, celebrity stalkers, missing police informants, care home saboteurs, rural rednecks and murderous magicians, embezzling accountants and abducted au pairs, blackmail, comp claims and custody cases, all-night stake-outs and professional hits.
Frank and Lu put the world to rights as they snoop and pry. They disagree on almost everything, yet somehow, together, they make a surprisingly effective team. Although they would never admit it.
