The CW Network will soon introduce a new crime-fighting duo based on the legendary detective created by Arthur Conan Doyle. The original scripted drama Sherlock & Daughter, produced by Starlings Television Distribution, Albion Television, and StoryFirst, stars Emmy-nominated actor David Thewlis as the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes.

Sherlock & Daughter follows Holmes, who is out of his comfort zone, mysteriously unable to investigate a sinister case without risking the lives of his closest friends. Enter young American Amelia. After her mother’s mysterious murder, she learns her missing father may be the legendary detective. Despite wildly different backgrounds and attitudes, the pair must work together to solve a global conspiracy, crack her mother’s murder, and find out for sure if she really is Sherlock’s daughter.

The accomplished Thewlis is widely recognized for his various roles, including Knox Harrington in the cult classic The Big Lebowski, John Dee in The Sandman, and most recently, Norbert Fagin in The Artful Dodger. The mystery thriller is led by showrunner and executive producer James Duff (The Closer, Major Crimes) and is created, written, and executive produced by Brendan Foley (Cold Courage, The Man Who Died).

Amelia is played by Blu Hunt, who previously worked on The CW's fantasy-drama series The Originals. Hunt is also known for her work on the ABC sitcom Grown-ish and the biographical Western drama Lawmen: Bass Reeves. No Sherlock Holmes story would be complete without his arch-nemesis, Moriarty, who is brought to life by international Award-winning Dougray Scott. From playing the devilishly cool Mission Impossible villain Sean Ambrose to ghost hunter Major Alec Palmer on the sci-fi series Doctor Who, Scott is an exciting choice to play the infamous professor.

"The CW continues to expand its original programming lineup with quality scripted and unscripted series, based on IP that everyone knows, that encourage co-viewing across generations of fans," said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network. "Sherlock & Daughter brings Cannes Film Festival Best Actor award winner and SAG, Golden Globe, and Emmy nominated David Thewlis to the network as the renowned detective Sherlock Holmes. The entire cast and creative team have done a magnificent job putting a new twist on the classic character."

Micah "War Dog" Wright (They’re Watching, First Nations Comedy Experience) and Shelly Goldstein (Cold Courage, Laverne & Shirley) are writers on the series. Karine Martin, Chris Philip, Peter Gerwe, Dominic Barlow, and Ivan Dunleavy also serve as executive producers, along with Escapade Media.

No other cast or date information has been announced at this time.
