Southern housewife Jodie Colter (Lauren Holly) suspects that her loutish hubby Buck (Max Martini) is cheating on her, and hires a seedy private detective to gather evidence. But when the detective skips town with her money , Jodie takes over the "assignment" herself. Adopting a multitude of clever disguises to keep her errant husband under surveillance, Jodie finds she has a real talent for gumshoe-ing, thus she becomes a full-time P.I., devoted to helping other women who've been hosed by their spouses. Set in Tennessee, but filmed in Belgium (!), the made-for-cable Caught in the Act premiered over the Lifetime network on May 10, 2004, presumably as a pilot for a proposed series starring the estimable Lauren Holly.
