Warner Bros Discovery has ordered original crime thriller series Sherlock & Daughter, starring David Thewlis (Fargo, Landscapers, The Artful Dodger) as the detective Sherlock Holmes.

The eight part series features an older Sherlock Holmes, less confident and out of his comfort zone. The renowned detective finds himself mysteriously unable to investigate a sinister case without risking the lives of his closest friends.

Sherlock battles between his intellect and his emotion when he is confronted with this young woman claiming to be his daughter. Despite wildly different backgrounds and attitudes, Amelia proves herself essential to cracking the case as the pair work together to solve a global conspiracy, the mystery of her mother’s murder and find out for sure if she really is Sherlock’s daughter. Will she lead to his redemption?

Meanwhile young American, Amelia, played by Blu Hunt (The Originals, The Mutants) learns her missing father may be the esteemed detective, after her mother’s shocking and unexplainable murder. Dougray Scott (A Town Called Malice, Vigil, Crime) also stars in the series as Holmes’ nemesis, Moriarty.

Clare Laycock said: “We are thrilled to bring Sherlock & Daughter – a gritty, dangerous, thriller to discovery+ viewers. Crime is one of the most popular genres across our streaming and linear portfolio and we are excited to broaden with this scripted original featuring such a stellar line up of talent in David Thewlis and Dougray Scott.”

It will air on streaming service discovery+ later this year.
