Hulu Plus adds Elementary

Off-network rights to Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary have just been snapped up by cable channel WGN America.

Now Hulu Plus has moved to acquire subscription VoD rights to the series.



The online platform has bought rights to complete past seasons of the drama, which will be available to subscribers after each season has finished on CBS.

Elementary, currently in its second season, stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr Joan Watson as the crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s toughest cases.

It is produced by CBS Television Studios and executive produced by Rob Doherty, Carl Beverly, Sarah Timberman and Craig Sweeny.
