Sorry, Sherlock, but we're all about Watson these days!
Lucy Liu is set to take on the iconic role of Watson in CBS' new Sherlock Holmes update Elementary, which also stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock. Plus, the network is also One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush's new home—they picked up her sitcom with Ugly Betty's Michael Urie, Partners.
CBS just released trailers for four of their new series they picked up for next season, so what are you waiting for? Check them out now...
One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush + Ugly Betty's Michael Urie = win! From the creators of Will & Grace, Urie and David Krumholtz play best friends/architects whose working relationship resembles a marriage. Bush plays Krumholtz's fiancée, while former Superman Brandon Routh is Urie's significant other.
Yes, yet another Sherlock Holmes update. Wait, don't roll your eyes! This one, from Rob Doherty, has a few interesting twists up its sleeve, including Lucy Liu as Watson, a sober companion to Jonny Lee Miller's rehabbing Sherlock, who now lives in New York. Aidan Quinn also stars as Capt. Tobias "Toby" Gregson. (Sherlockians will note that he shares the same name as the consulting detective's freelance mongrel: "I would rather have Toby's help than that of the whole detective force of London," said Sherlock in The Sign of Four.)
Set in the 1960s, Vegas focuses on rodeo cowboy turned sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid), who went up against the Las Vegas mob. Based on the real life of Ralph Lamb, the drama also boasts an incredibly talented cast, including Michael Chiklis, Jason O'Mara and Carrie-Ann Moss.
Made in Jersey
Human Target's Janet Montgomery stars in this drama centering on a working-class lawyer who gets a job in a Manhattan law firm thanks to her book (and street) smarts. Kyle MacLachlan, Stephanie March and Donna Murphy also star in Made in Jersey, which hails from Kevin Falls and Dana Calvo.
(Note: CBS did not release trailers for new series Friend Me and Golden Boy, which are set to debut midseason.)
