Sherlock USA bound in ‘Elementary’
Late last year it was announced that American TV network CBS were planning to jump on the Sherlock bandwagon with a modern-day take on the iconic detective.
Naturally, with the BBC’s hugely popular Sherlock already doing the same thing and an incredible job to boot, people weren’t exactly warm to the idea. Even Steven Moffat called CBS TV out.
Regardless the American one is still going ahead with a pilot episode, written by Robert Doherty, now greenlit. The show has also been given a title – Elementary. See what they did there?
Elementary will no longer see Sherlock living in Baker Street, instead he’ll be relocated to New York City. Presumably, he will not be British any more either…
Yes, we can see this being a real winner.
