    • Synopsis
    • Howard Spitz (Kelsey Grammer) writes really bad detective novels and he’s broke. Having realised how much money can be made from kid’s books, he creates “Crafty Cow”, the cow detective – “Days she gives milk, night she’s a detective!”Whilst researching in a kid’s library, he meets Sam, a precocious pre-teen who offers him editorial advice in return for his help to find her long lost father. To everybody’s surprise, not least Howard’s weary agent, Lou, “Crafty Cow” becomes a huge hit. The only trouble is, Howard really hates kids. Unable to cope with his new found success, he hires an actor, the dim-witted Roger, to impersonate him.As the search for Sam’s father continues, Howard reluctantly falls for her mum, Laura (Amanda Donohoe), Roger develops an immense ego, Lou almost smiles and the whole scam spins wildly out of control forcing the real Howard Spitz to finally step into the limelight.
