With its Upfront presentation occurring this coming Wednesday, CBS was no slouch in following the other networks this weekend in making big renewal and cancellation orders. We're still distraught that we've seen the last of Horatio Caine delivering glib one-liners with shades following the cancellation of 'CSI: Miami,' but what elementary new series does the network have its eye on?
It happens just about every pilot season that one series winds up being compared to another for their apparent similarities. Just about every network sci-fi drama somehow gets measured up to be 'The Next 'LOST,'" and 'Smash' drew heavy 'Glee' comparisons at first, though very rarely a new pilot deals with the very same property as an existing show!
It happens all the time in America, but that doesn't mean the British have to be happy about it. A number of UK-originating series have made their way across the pond to be adapted for American TV, some more successfully than others, and now 'Sherlock' creator Steven Moffat has a bone to pick.
And now, we present to you Sherlock Holmes' greatest mystery to date: how he ended up in modern-day New York City, with his long-time partner suddenly swapping genders!
News already broke that CBS would develop modern adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes character 'Elementary,' starring British actor Jonny Lee Miller, yet set in New York City rather than London. Now, new details have emerged from TVLine that former 'Ally McBeal' star, Charlie's Angel and current 'Southland' babe Lucy Liu has nabbed the role of Holmes' most trusted companion, Watson! Huh?
