After her life in the city blows up, former police officer Darby Spencer (Stacey Farber) is forced to return home to her estranged mother, renowned mystery novelist Victoria Spencer (Lea Thompson), where the two embark on the unlikeliest of ventures – becoming partners in a private detective agency.
THE SPENCER SISTERS is a light-hearted, one-hour procedural that follows mother-anddaughter duo Victoria (Lea Thompson, Back To The Future, CAROLINE IN THE CITY) and Darby Spencer (Stacey Farber, VIRGIN RIVER, SCHITT’S CREEK), as they tackle puzzling new cases in the fictional town of Alder Bluffs, Ont.. After a string of bad luck, former police officer Darby Spencer is forced to return home to her estranged mother, internationally renowned mystery novelist Victoria Spencer (who insists the two look like sisters). But after the duo is thrust into solving a crime together, Darby discovers a side to Victoria she never knew, and ultimately takes the plunge into the unlikeliest of ventures: becoming her partner in a private detective agency. Despite their opposing personalities, differing sensibilities, and complicated history, they discover they may have more in common than they thought. Each episode brings a new case to solve, and a new bone to pick. And while the tightly-wound Darby and the carefree Victoria may never quite see eye to eye, they discover that maybe – just maybe – they need each other more than they realize.
