The sequel to Sherlock Holmes is heading to the big screen this holiday season, and it looks like a modern day take is heading to the small screen soon. Deadline reprots that CBS has bought Sherlock Holmes, a drama project from CBS TV Studios and Timberman/Beverly Prods. The project is described as "a modern take on the cases of the pipe-smoking private eye created by Arthur Conan Doyle." The series is being written by Rob Doherty and executive produced with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
This purchase makes sense with the success of Guy Ritchie's filmis and Masterpiece Theaters Sherlock. I love reading Doyle's stories and am interested in seeing them on the small screen. I have heard such great things about Sherlock.
