The Edgar Allan Poe police procedural pilot . . .
. . . has been picked up by ABC. Thanks for the tip, TV Guide:
The crime procedural Poe follows Edgar Allan Poe as the world’s first detective. He employs unorthodox methods to investigate dark mysteries in 1840s Boston. The project will tell how some of Poe’s famous stories came to be, but only some episodes will be about a specific Poe story. Chris Hollier (Alias) wrote the pilot and will produce along with Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes).
(Sounds suspiciously like the John Cusack film, right?)
