CBS Greenlights New Contemporary Sherlock Holmes Series ELEMENTARY

     January 17, 2012

The contemporary series Sherlock, which takes the iconic detective and brings him into modern day Britain just garnered a third season, but now CBS is going to try and bring the classic literary character to the United States with a new series called Elementary. THR reports the network has just given the greenlight to the series from writer Robert Doherty who will also executive produce with Sarah Timberman (Unforgettable) and Carl Beverly. There aren’t any details on the series except that in will see Sherlock living in New York City. That could very well mean this won’t be a British detective anymore. Honestly, I can’t say I’m all that thrilled with the prospect since the BBC has delivered such a stellar contemporary series already, but we’ll see what happens.
