CBS Snares Elementary, Its Own Modern Take on Sherlock Holmes
Even as co-creator Steven Moffat confirmed BBC One’s Sherlock will return for a third season, CBS has moved forward with its own modern-day take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary detective.
Variety reports the network has picked up a pilot for Elementary, which transplants the sleuth to present-day New York City. The drama, from CBS TV Studios, is executive produced by Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Kidnapped). Robert Doherty wrote the pilot script.
