Outstanding

In March 2009, HBO debuted The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, a show based on Alexander McCall Smith's book series of the same name, starring Scott in the lead role. By 2010 she won her first award as an actress when the NAACP presented her with the title of Outstanding Actress in a Television Movie, Mini-Series.
