Fox’s David Shore Drama ‘Houdini & Doyle’ to Premiere in May

Fox has slotted its new mystery adventure series “Houdini & Doyle,” from “House” creator David Shore and starring Michael Weston and Stephen Mangan, for Mondays this spring.

The 10-episode drama will bow May 2 at 9 p.m., following “Gotham” and one week after current 9 p.m. series “Lucifer” ends its first season. Like last year’s “Wayward Pines,” which also bowed in May on Fox, it will continue to run into summer.

Inspired by true events, the series follows two great men of the 20th century and real-life friends — Harry Houdini (Weston), master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker; and Arthur Conan Doyle (Mangan), prolific writer, creator of “Sherlock Holmes” and paranormal aficionado. They grudgingly join forces with New Scotland Yard to investigate unsolved, inexplicable and possibly supernatural crimes, alongside the first female constable of the London Metropolitan Police Force, Adelaide Stratton (Rebecca Liddiard).

Houdini & Doyle” will debut simultaneously on the Canadian television network Global. The series is a Canada/U.K. treaty co-production from Shaftesbury (Canada) and Big Talk Productions (U.K.), in association with Shore Z Productions. The series, distributed by Sony Pictures Television, is exec produced by Shore, and written and created by his longtime collaborator, David Hoselton, and veteran TV writer-producer David Titcher.
