Luther

Luther is getting an American remake on Fox. Neil Cross is writing it, so it could be good, but I'm not holding my breath.

In more exciting news, the original, London-based, Idris Elba Luther is coming back for two one-hour TV specials.

Technically he's executive producing, but yeah, they're going to have to find somebody really, really good to play Luther.

(And Alice. The lady who played Cupid on last night's Arrow seemed like maybe she could pull it off.)

There's also the question of whether it'll be original material or whether they'll do a Gracepoint and just remake the British show line-for-line and shot-for-shot. Cross writing new material could at least make for something interestingly different.

But yeah, there's a reason I said the version that's got Elba coming back is the more exciting news.
