It has just been announced that the series will star Stephen Mangan, of Green Wing and Episodes and Michael Weston of House as the ‘real-life friends, real-life adversaries and real-life crime solvers’.
According to Variety:
The series revolves around master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker, Harry Houdini (Weston) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Mangan), the prolific writer, paranormal aficionado and creator of “Sherlock Holmes,” as they grudgingly join forces with New Scotland Yard to investigate inexplicable crimes with a supernatural slant.
The ten-part drama will screen in 2016 on Fox and ITV Encore (I don’t know what that is). Could this be the next Jonathan Creek?
