The game is afoot! CBS has unveiled the first trailer for Elementary, the modern day retelling of Sherlock Holmes set in NYC.

As part of the broadcaster’s up-fronts from earlier on today, CBS released a lengthy promo trailer for the controversial series starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. The three and a half minute video takes us behind the scenes as cast and crew discuss characters, tone, and setting. We also get to see the super sleuth in action for the first time, interacting with a female Dr. Watson and performing some of his trademark deductions.

This morning we brought you the official synopsis and four promo stills for the series.

How do you feel about the series after seeing the trailer? Is it too similar to Sherlock, or too different from the original canon?
