Private Eyes Preview: “Crimes of Fashion”

Private Eyes

Shade and Angie find themselves in over their heads this week on Private Eyes when Becca ropes them into a high-fashion security detail that starts as a simple delivery and ends with a heist at gunpoint.

Then it’s up to the dynamic duo, plus Becca — who’s seriously worried that she’s tanked her career because the heist means her showcase episode about an up-and-coming designer is over before it begins — to track down the stolen couture so the fashion show, and Becca’s exclusive, can go on.

While they juggle that, Shade and Angie separately try to sway Zoe to side with them in the redesign of Everett Investigations, which she deftly sidesteps. At home, Shade’s attempt to be the cool dad about Julie’s budding new romance is tested. It’s a fun, sweet episode that has the business partners and co-parents searching for a balance and finding it in a surprising way.

Look for Al Sapienza, who recurred last fall on Shoot the Messenger, as an import/export businessman with an equally vested interest in resolving the heist and cameos from Toronto-based fashion designer Stephan Caras and Canadian journalist Jeanne Beker.

I have to give a nod to Nicole de Boer, who is having the best time ever as Becca, directed here by her The Dead Zone boss and Private Eyes showrunner, Shawn Piller.

Private Eyes airs at 8/7c Thursdays on Global TV. Also, good news last week, ICYMI, the show has been renewed for a nine-episode third season!
