Sherlock USA is coming
For some reason, TV execs in the States have decided that Sherlock Holmes could do with an American makeover.
A ‘new’ series is being developed by US network CBS and is set to bring the master detective into the modern era. Now there’s an idea!
The famous 19th century British detective is headed for a commercial TV series update. CBS has bought Sherlock Holmes, a drama project from CBS TV Studios and studio-based Timberman/Beverly Prods., which is described as a modern take on the cases of the pipe-smoking private eye created by Arthur Conan Doyle. Rob Doherty is writing and will executive produce with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
Sherlock’s Steven Moffat wasn’t too pleased with the news and responded on Twitter: “Dear CBS. A modern day Sherlock Holmes? Where, oh where, did you get THAT idea? We’ll be watching!”
