Harry Houdini & Arthur Conan Doyle series on the way

March 22nd, 2015 by Saxon Comments


According to Deadline a new supernatural crime drama is on the way… with a very interesting twist. 

Inspired by the friendship between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the famous creator of Sherlock Holmes, and world-renowned illusionist Harry Houdini, the 10 episode series “Houdini & Doyle” will be produced by Fox.

In Houdini And Doyle, two of the great characters of the 20th century — Houdini, master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker, and Doyle, creator of the world’s greatest detective and a paranormal aficionado — grudgingly join forces to investigate crimes with a supernatural slant. Although they’re both rich, famous and brilliant, they’re the original odd couple, with Houdini believing in nothing, Doyle in everything.

Created by The Librarian creator David Titcher, House creator David Shore and House writer/producer David Hoselton, it will be co-produced by Canada’s Shaftesbury and the UK’s Big Talk companies with Sony TV distributing the series worldwide.
