Lucy Liu Cast as Watson in “Elementary”

CBS’s modern take on Sherlock Holmes has found its Watson. Joan Watson, that is.

Actress Lucy Liu has been cast in the role of Joan Watson for the upcoming pilot Elementary.

The project, written by Robert Doherty, is set in present day and stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes, a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City. Just out of rehab, Holmes now lives in Brooklyn with “sober companion” Joan Watson (Liu), a former surgeon who lost her license after a patient died, while consulting for the NYPD.
