Finally, the noir rigmarole of antihero television has acknowledged a previously ignored subject: the onerous obstacles facing petite sleuths.
Funny or Die released a clip from the highly anticipated Tiny Detectives, a follow-up to True Detective. Kate Mara (5’2”) and Ellen Page (5’1”) are the leads. The impactful two-minute trailer reveals that this show will not shy away from the inherent drama of being a tiny girl. They can’t see things other people can see! That is literally dramatic irony. They can reach things other people can’t reach! That could be a metaphor or just a gripping hurdle for the plot. Tiny Detectives: already the stuff of great television.
