CBS is tapping into the world of literature for two new mystery projects, including a reinvention of the classic "Sherlock Holmes" mysteries, Deadline.com reports.
The network also has a project in the works based on the "Mommy-Track Mysteries" by Ayelet Waldman, the story reports.
The "Sherlock Holmes" project is described as a modern version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective, with Rob Doherty writing and executive producing with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
Waldman is adapting her comedic book series about Juliet Applebaum, a public defender who becomes a stay-at-home-mom and private investigator, the story notes. The series includes six novels, including "The Big Nap" and "A Playdate With Death," the piece adds.
