Trivia / The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

  • Dyeing for Your Art: Jill Scott had to bulk up to play the "traditionally-built" Ramotswe for the pilot. She was pregnant for the second, eliminating that problem.
  • Fake Nationality: Mma Ramotswe is played by American Jill Scott; they tried to find someone in Africa to play her, but failed. Quite a lot of the other characters are also played by non-Batswana.
