Harry Houdini & Arthur Conan Doyle series on the way

March 22nd, 2015 by Marc 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.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
