This pilot just got some serious star power!

Continuing to take the unconventional route in its Sherlock Holmes remake, Elementary, CBS's drama pilot, just inked Lucy Liu to star as Joan Watson, Sherlock faithful sidekick.

As previously reported, Jonny Lee Miller has been tapped to star as a rehabilitated Sherlock who now finds himself in NYC.

Liu's Watson will have lost her medical license before the first episode due to the death of a patient and will serve as his "sober companion."

This promises to have lots of dramz!!!

We're interested to see where this pairing will go. Lucy had been sought after for two other pilots this season, so we're interested to see why this one won out!

Do U like where this new Sherlock take is headed?

    She must be the dullest actress ever.



  2. 2

    WHY are they making another Sherlock Holmes tv series? There's an amazing on right now on the BBC, and American television doesn't have a shot in hell of making a show anywhere near as good as that one. Ridiculous.

    Why are they doing more Sherlock? We already have the films and the fantastic british series… this is sounding so so full of fail.



  7. 7

    Gross. This makes me miss BBC's Sherlock even more.



  8. 8

    Are you f-ing kidding? This is a joke, right?
    Everything about this project is just beyond pathetic.
    Give it up, CBS. Damn.

    I think Lucy is gorgeous, but this is just wrong.

    This series is already on its way to flopdom.
    They should just air the BBC series here…too bad most people who watch CBS would probably need subtitles or even worse dubbing…
