Frankie Drake Mysteries: Dealer’s Choice
Frankie and Trudy take on a risky case and one is accused of murder
We’re approaching the end of the season for Frankie Drake Mysteries. On Thursday, May 19 at 8:30pm, we’ll air Dealer’s Choice – the next to last episode of this season – on WITF TV. You can also stream WITF TV live through the PBS Video app, at witf.org/watch, and video.witf.org.
In Dealer’s Choice, Frankie and Trudy reluctantly take a case from mob boss Bessie Starkman, but their investigation takes a turn when Frankie’s accused of murdering a mole.
Frankie Drake Mysteries takes place in 1920s Toronto and follows the city’s only female private detectives as they defy expectations and rebel against conventions to crack the cases the police won’t touch.
It stars Lauren Lee Smith (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as Frankie and Chantel Riley (Race) as Trudy.
Our two valiant detectives have worked against the clock to find a gravely ill kidnapping victim and have been hired by civil rights leader Marcus Garvey and fashion icon Coco Chanel (as played by actors) during this season.
Their adventures have taken them through every cross-section of diverse Toronto, from gospel church choirs to the homes of the city’s wealthy elite. They’re paving a new path in a new world – but the world might not be ready for them.
Watch Frankie Drake Mysteries: Dealer’s Choice Thursday, May 19 at 8:30pm on WITF TV or stream it live through the PBS Video app. WITF Passport members can stream all four seasons of Frankie Drake Mysteries on-demand through the PBS Video app or online.
