ABC Orders Crime Drama Pilot with Edgar Allan Poe as Sleuth

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

We're learning (via Inside TV) that ABC has ordered a crime drama pilot for a series featuring Edgar Allan Poe as a sleuth using unconventional methods as he investigates dark mysteries in 1840s Boston. Chris Hollier (Alias, Kyle XY) is writing the screenplay.

Could be interesting ... but seems to us to be heavily dependent on casting. The right actor could pull it off; get the wrong actor, and it becomes a farce.
