Actor Jonny Lee Miller (Eli Stone, Dexter) has been cast in the CBS pilot which puts its own contemporary spin on the Sherlock Holmes stories.
Titled Elementary, the US reimagining is unrelated to the BBC’s Sherlock (the latter has even warned the former not to resemble its own) and set in New York City.
Miller, last seen as a killer in Dexter, will play the Holmes character.
Robert Doherty (Star Trek: Voyager) will write and executive produce with Sarah Timberman (A Gifted Man, Unforgettable) and Carl Beverly as executive producers.
Elementary is one of eight drama pilots in contention at CBS.
