Fox is taking a crack at another adaptation of a British series.
After launching the “Broadchurch” adaptation “Gracepoint” this fall, the network is developing its own take on the BBC series “Luther.”
The adaptation, which has received a put pilot commitment, will be written and executive produced by Neil Cross, who created the BBC series and executive produced and wrote NBC’s pirate drama “Crossbones.”
The BBC crime drama starred Elba as John Luther, a detective chief inspector who becomes consumed by the dark crimes he’s investigating.
The adaptation is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Chernin Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Productions.
