According to Buchmann, “The series follows three women with extraordinary abilities in a time when men ruled the world. Detective Sturgess and her cohorts are beauties that team up and use their knowledge of Shaolin Kung Fu fighting, extraordinary paranormal forces and dark secrets to fight for justice and truth.” Buchmann openly admits that he wrote the lead with Gillian Anderson in mind. Anderson gained fame as the female lead in the “X-Files.”
In the pilot episode, a Russian Expedition finds a secret document in a monastery in the mountains of the Himalayas. The document records the life of Jesus before he was age 30 and tells of his initiation into the practices of the Natha-Yogis and the abilities of followers to stop their own heartbeats and feel no pain. Samantha Sturgess’ father finds the document, and the Vatican, fearful of losing its hold on millions of Christians, sends a killer-group to obtain the document and assassinate Professor Sturgess and his family.
“Detective Samantha Sturgess” features an all-star ensemble cast including Kellie Dionne Backman as Sturgess, series co-author Jamie McCall as Betty Sutherland, Kris Kelly, Ken Cameron, Dawna Lee Heising and numerous others whose names and faces will be familiar to TV viewers.
