Jackée Harry is ready to “knock a few heads to fight crime” in the upcoming Lifetime Movie Network film series As Luck Would Have It.
Harry (Days of Our Lives, 227) leads the cast of the three-part film series as Gabbi Luck, a retired professor turned amateur sleuth who uses her background in criminology to help solve murders.
In the newly released teaser trailer, Jackée warns “Gabbi Luck still got some tricks up her sleeve.”
In addition to the Emmy-winning actress, the cast also includes Mea Wilkerson (Keeping Up with the Joneses) as Detective Lisa Luck; Doug Rogers (S.W.A.T.) as her partner Rick Anderson; Dorian Gregory (Charmed) as police psychologist Dr. Nolan; Tracy Nelson (Father Dowling Mysteries) as fellow detective Barbara; Tom Arnold (FUBAR) as Captain Taylor; and Ricco Ross (Aliens) as Gabbi’s ex-husband Michael.
The three movies come from Hybrid Films and were produced earlier this year. The films will air on Thursday nights at 8/7c beginning Aug. 31.

When Gabbi’s (Jackée Harry ) former associate Charles David (Jon Bridell), the Dean of Criminology at Williams College, is found murdered the morning she is to deliver a guest lecture, classes are cancelled, and an investigation quickly ensues.

When her father, Michael (Ross), becomes a person of interest in the untimely death of his ex-business partner, Wayne (Will Roberts, Oppenheimer), Lisa (Wilkerson) must do whatever she can to help. Though reluctant to do so, this means she will need to enlist the aid of her mother, Gabbi (Harry), to lend a hand (and her brain). Together, they work through the list of other possible suspects, including Wayne’s jealous ex-wife, his new business partner and the business manager who knew where Wayne has been hiding his money.

Gabbi’s (Harry) longtime friend, Kimberly Stark (Helene Udy), is finally selling her home after residing in it for many years. But the morning after the very first open house, her broker is found dead in her foyer.

But after questioning Kimberly, Gabbi points Lisa (Wilkerson) and her partner Rick (Rogers) in another direction.
