CBS Tracks Down Its Own Modern Take On <i>Sherlock Holmes</i>

While fans on both sides of the Atlantic eagerly await the second season of the U.K. drama Sherlock, CBS is on the trail of its own modern-day take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s famed sleuth.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered a script for the drama from CBS Television and Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Kidnapped). The duo will executive produce alongside Rob Doherty, who will write the script.

Meanwhile, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, director Guy Ritchie’s sequel to the 2009 Robert Downey Jr.-Jude Law blockbuster, arrives in theaters Dec. 16. And the second season of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, premieres in 2012.
