Get On The Bus With Jill Scott's No.1 Ladies Detective Agency

While taking a break from the 9-6 monotony, guess who I spotted chillin' on a bus stop on Sunset Blvd? Mother-to-be, poetess, singer, actress, and one of my all time favorite performers, Jill Scott! Across 2 lanes of heavy trafficI couldn't watch the road and her too so I pulled Corolla into a nearby gas station and busted a "flick", papparrazzi style with the Blackberry.

Okay, that first paragraph is obviously poetic license 'cause Jill is hardly riding city buses anymore. Not that she wouldn't, but with fame comes sacrifice. Still it was good to see her likeness and new series, 'The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency' getting strong promotion in Hollywood. I took these pics near the corner of Sunset and Wilton Place. Though I would have preferred to see the colorful banner on a huge billboard--and they may exist, I just haven't seen them--these pretty benches definitely got my attention. However, if people had been sitting down...Well, at least it's a busy intersection.

The series was shot in Botswana last year and will air, March 29th on HBO. 'Dreamgirls' and 'Frog Princess' actress, Anika Noni Rose, also stars. Get more info about 'The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency' from my post last year HERE. And see below behind-the-scenes footage of Jill, Anika,the cast, and now deceased director, Anthony Minghella from CNN.
