“Luther” To Get An American Re-Boot

I guess Fox didn’t learn from its failed attempt to Americanize “Broadchurch.” The network has announced plans for an Americanized version of “Luther.” Based on the BBC’s show of the same name, which starred Idris Elba (pictured), the one-hour drama pilot will track John Luther. Fox describes him as “a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can’t always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions.” Elba will be one of the new version’s executive producers. I strongly hope he doesn’t star; he has better things to do.
