September 2016


ELEMENTARY stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s most impossible cases. Initially sober companion and client, their relationship evolved into a symbiotic professional investigative partnership. Holmes and Watson are the top homicide consultants for Captain Thomas Gregson and work regularly alongside Detective Marcus Bell, but their status with the force is revoked when Holmes assaults a former associate and suffers a relapse. Facing professional uncertainty, Sherlock and Joan are shocked by the arrival of Morland Holmes, Sherlock’s estranged father. Morland orchestrates Sherlock and Joan’s reinstatement to the NYPD, but his ongoing presence in New York brings unsettling family secrets to the surface. While Sherlock reels from the revelation that his deceased mother was also an addict, Joan endures a family bombshell of her own when she learns of a younger half-sister she never knew existed. When Sherlock, Joan and Morland form a tenuous alliance to find the perpetrator behind an assassination attempt on Morland’s life, they uncover a clandestine international crime organization once run by Sherlock’s former lover and nemesis, Moriarty. To save himself and Sherlock, Morland makes a secret power play that leaves him as the new head of the nefarious organization, and departs for London with plans to dismantle the syndicate from within.
