Bloody Disgusting got exclusive word that Alex Graves will be directing the one-hour pilot episode of “Poe” for ABC. Graves also directed the pilot of “Terra Nova” for producer Steve Spielberg and “Fridge” for J.J. Abrams. Now you know just how cool this could be!
Penned by Chris Hollier for Warner Bros. TV and Lin Pictures, “Poe” is a new crime procedural TV series that will follow Edgar Allan Poe, the world’s very first detective, as he uses unconventional methods to investigate dark mysteries in 1840s Boston. It’s described as Sherlock Holmes with a hint of “X-Files” and “Moonlighting”. Shooting begins March 14 in Toronto.
