Golden Globes Nominations
Following in the steps of "Gracepoint," which originated as British television series "Broadchurch" before hopping the pond for an American version, BBC crime drama "Luther" is also getting a remake as a series on Fox.

Deadline reports that Fox has ordered a pilot for the American "Luther," to be written and produced by original series creator Neil Cross. Idris Elba, who starred as the titular character, will also executive produce the remake.

A description of the original, per Deadline:

Luther, which ran on BBC for three seasons, centered on John Luther (Elba), a near-genius murder detective whose brilliant mind can't always save him from the dangerous violence of his passions. While opting to end the original series after a three-season, 14-episode run, Cross has left the door open for a Luther movie starring Elba.

No word on when the remake of the Emmy-nominated drama will hit the airwaves. Stay tuned for more info, including casting.
