FOX Television has put in an order for a pilot based on the popular BBC crime-drama “Luther” as well as three others for the 2015-2016 season. Luther is one of the best TV detective shows and it is most certainly one of the best show England has produced, The best shows from British TV is very long and they are brilliant with detective shows. I love a lot of old and new British shows like Only Fools And Horses, Fawlty Towers and Black Adder they are most cleverly written and their buildings are brilliant.
British “Luther” was a huge hit both in England and in the States, where Idris Elba has been nominated for multiple Emmys and Golden Globes for the role he originated as the genius detective. He won a Golden Globe for the role in 2010.
The new show will be written by original show creator Neil Cross, who executive produces the show along with Elba, Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner. Twentieth Century Fox TV is co-producing the new show with Chernin Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Productions.
