Great news about Tabrett, it's a big opportunity for her! If ABC picks up the show, she will be on network tv in a hopefully successful show. It could also mean lots of new pictures for us, fans, and probably some interviews too. And I'm sure we'd all be very happy if she decided to join twitter to promote the show a bit more. :)
"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 has an element of Guy Ritchie’s version of Sherlock Holmes, an element of steampunk and a real sense of fun. This is before Poe’s darkest days. He has a sense of humor; he’s a believer surrounded by skeptics. The show in some ways bears a resemblance to Castle.
