“Columbo" meets "Dog The Bounty Hunter". Becky “Hollywood P.I.” Altringer is a curious and quirky private investigator best known for her work in Kirby Dick’s “This Film Is Not Yet Rated”. She spends her days (and nights) driving around Southern California in her minivan trying to “catch the bad guys” and right the wrongs of the world. Taking on everything from pro-bono abuse cases to conspiracy cases by celebrities a’la Randy Quaid, you can be sure this Hollywood P.I. will NOT go quietly into the night.

Trapping thieves, catching stalkers, locating loved ones and even exposing the MPAA - it’s all in a days work for this female P.I. and her posse. Follow the real-life adventures of a woman who’ll stop at nothing - except maybe to feed a squirrel or pick up a stray dog – in her quest for justice. A survivor of incestual rape and a lifetime of abuse, Becky decided to spend her life fighting back and fighting for everyone else while she’s at it.

The premise of the show is simple; each week Becky will pick up a new case (carefully hand picked) and cameras will follow as she works the case. Each episode starts off with the alarm clock waking everyone in the house and ends with the family around the dining room table enjoying dinner - reflecting back on the day and the case.

With a P.I. apprentice to mentor, a lesbian life partner to take care of, her ex-con son, her school-teacher daughter and an 87-year-old Mamasita by her side, this Hollywood P.I. has her plate full! This is a family screaming out for their own reality series!

Between cases, we’ll follow Becky in her daily life. Not unlike “Little People Big World”, this is a show about an unconventional family and the life they’ve made for themselves. Becky volunteers at Peace Over Violence (an organization she holds near to her heart), she holds seminars for aspiring female P.I.’s, teaches local high school students about staying on the right side of the law and in her spare time uses her annual Disneyland pass to unwind at her favorite place. Whether she’s cracking a case, hanging out with her family or getting caught in the middle of a celebrity conspiracy, Hollywood P.I. is always an adventure!

She’s a bigger than life personality, with the ability to blend right in while investigating a case. “I even wear Disney clothes so that I look non-threatening! Nobody thinks twice about a women with Tinkerbell on her pocket” Becky doesn't look like a P.I. so she can go places where other people would get caught, "It's a great cover." Altringer says that in general, "someone like me who's meek and makes fun" can get people to open up where an intimidating man might fail. She plays dumb at times. But it's not always an act, she adds. "Sometimes," she admits, "I am a big dork." Can you imagine Philip Marlowe saying such a thing?
