Blame it on the Bossa Nova

Based on a teleplay by Charles Laurence, BLAME IT ON THE BOSSA NOVA is set in a fashionable London flat in the 60’s. Jilly Long, a not-quite-famous actress, finds herself accidentally playing hostess to a Brazilian film producer who is casting the lead in a historical epic. She can hardly believe her luck until, somehow, the producer ends up dead in her bed the next morning. Then she has to enlist the help of her bitchily competitive actress mother and her dim but sexy housecleaner Pete to help her get rid of the body.
