Each letter a life. Each life a chance to be rewritten…
If you want to know who are today’s real “knights in shining armor,” then come to the basement Post Office workplace of the Dead Letters team. Their job is to deliver the “undeliverables,” letters and packages that have been impossible to deliver – until now! Head of the postal detectives is prim and proper Oliver, whose partner Shane complements his old-school letter hunting with her technological skills.
Indeed, the perky, techno-savvy young woman is like a breath of fresh air that invigorates not only Oliver, but also the team’s two other postal Sherlocks Rita and Norman. Together, the four venture out of their basement office and set out into an unpredictable world where letters from the past save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures. They may arrive late, but they’re always miraculously on time.
“Lost Letter Mysteries” was created by Martha Williamson, the executive producer of “Touched by an Angel” and stars Eric Mabius (“Ugly Betty,” “The O.C.”), Kristin Booth (“The Kennedys”), Crystal Lowe (“Smallville”), and Geoff Gustafson (“Primeval: New World”).
