Fox Announces May 2 Start Date for ‘Houdini & Doyle’

The Mystery Drama Replaces 'Lucifer'

Upcoming Fox mystery-themed drama “Houdini & Doyle,” starring Michael Weston and Stephen Mangan, will debut on Monday, May 2 at 9 p.m. following “Gotham.” It replaces “Lucifer,” which will have concluded its freshman season one week earlier.

The logline: Inspired by true events, “Houdini & Doyle” follows two great men of the 20th century and real-life friends — Harry Houdini (Weston), master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker; and Arthur Conan Doyle (Mangan), prolific writer, creator of “Sherlock Holmes” and paranormal aficionado. They grudgingly join forces with New Scotland Yard to investigate unsolved, inexplicable and possibly supernatural crimes, alongside the first female constable of the London Metropolitan Police Force, Adelaide Stratton (Rebecca Liddiard).
