London, Wed, 29 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 29 (ANI): Lucy Liu is set to play a female 'Watson' to Sherlock Holmes as the famous detective greets American TV screens with the CBS show 'Elementary'.


The 43-year-old will star in the pilot as Joan Watson, Holmes' sidekick, which has been traditionally played by men. She will live with him in New York.


If the pilot is picked up, a series will be made and aired in the autumn.


British star Jonny Lee Miller has taken the lead as the legendary sleuth Holmes, the BBC reported.


The detective series will be based in a modern day New York, and there is no more information about which of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories the show will tackle.


The show is being written and executive produced by Robert Doherty. Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly will also be executive producers.


The UK version, which is called 'Sherlock' will return for a third series and will star Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, with Martin Freeman as John Watson.


Last year, Miller appeared on stage with Cumberbatch, in the National Theatre's 'Frankenstein'. (ANI)
