CBS has announced a straight-to-series order for its new drama, Watson, starring Morris Chestnut, for the 2024-2025 season.

Larry Teng (Walker: Independence, Nancy Drew, NCIS: Hawai’i) is set to direct and executive produce the first episode.

Here’s the synopsis from CBS:

In WATSON, a year after the death of his friend and partner Sherlock Holmes at the hands of Moriarty, Dr. John Watson (Chestnut) resumes his medical career as the head of a clinic dedicated to treating rare disorders. Watson’s old life isn’t done with him, though – Moriarty and Watson are set to write their own chapter of a story that has fascinated audiences for more than a century. WATSON is a medical show with a strong investigative spine, featuring a modern version of one of history’s greatest detectives as he turns his attention from solving crimes to solving medical mysteries.

Craig Sweeny wrote the pilot and will showrun and executive produce. Other executive producers include Morris Chestnut, Shäron Moalem MD, PhD; and Aaron Kaplan and Brian Morewitz for Kapital Entertainment.
