CBS has already giving us a few peeks at their upcoming new series, in the form of photos, trailers and in the case of the upcoming modern-day Sherlock Holmes series Elementary, a screening of the pilot episode. And now the Eye has released the key art for their four new series, which give us a look at the casts of each of the. Check them out ahead and see how CBS is marketing Vegas, Elementary, Made in Jersey and Partners.
We seem to be seeing a lot for Elementary these days, so we'll start with that one. The detective drama has Jonny Lee Miller playing a modern day Sherlock Holmes, assisted by his "sober companion" former surgeon Dr. Watson (Lucy Liu). The tagline at the top of the poster: New Holmes. New Watson. New York. That, in addition to the apartment setting is an obvious nod to the updated backdrop for the series, which is one of at least a few things that will probably set this series apart from BBC's Sherlock, another recent modern take on Arthur Conan Doyle's classic character.
Elementary premieres Thursday, September 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
Next up we have Partners, which - as you'll see at the top of the poster below - comes from the creators of Will & Grace, though the taxi cab setting of the New York set comedy rings a bit closer to CBS' How I Met Your Mother. The tagline "Four friends. Three couples." references the relationships of the four lead characters, with David Krumholtz and Michael Urie playing two best friends and business partners who work in New York. Krumholt'z Joe is engaged to Ali (Sophia Bush), while Urie's Louis is dating Brandon Routh's Wyatt. So we have two romantic couples here and one bromance between Joe and Louis.
Partners premieres Monday, September 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
And then we have Made in Jersey, another new series set (at least in part) in New York (starting to see a pattern developing here…). This one stars Janet Montgomery as Martina Garretti, a Jersey native who's the "underdog" amidst the fancy colleagues she's surrounded by in the Manhattan based law firm in which she works. Lots of red in this one, which makes it stand out, just as I expect Martina Garretti will in her workplace.
Made in Jersey premieres Friday, September 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
Finally, the only new CBS series not set in New York makes that situation well known in its name. Vegas is set in the 60s and stars Dennis Quaid as former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb a man who finds himself going head to head with Michael Chiklis' Vincent Savino, a Chicago gangster looking to cash in on everything Vegas has to offer. "Let the Sin Begin."
Vegas premieres Tuesday, September 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
