TV: Edgar Allan ‘Poe,’ Super Detective

Yeesh, Edgar Allan poe has become a hot commodity all of a sudden. With a trio of movies in development, a new crime procedural TV series is in the works that will follow “Poe,” the world’s very first detective, as he uses unconventional methods to investigate dark mysteries in 1840s Boston. ABC greenlighted the period show that was penned by Chris Hollier for Warner Bros. TV and Lin Pictures. No other details are available, but it is nice to see TV headed in a much darker direction (they can;t all be “House” rip-offs).
