Houdini & Doyle's New Poster Turns the Crime Genre on Its Head

Houdini Doyle poster

Fox’s new event series Houdini & Doyle may not be set in the 1970s, but its new poster nevetheless recalls the lyrics a certain Diana Ross disco classic: Upside down you’re turnin’ me.

Indeed, the kicky key art finds master magician Harry Houdini (House‘s Michael Weston) shackled and hanging from the ceiling, as Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Episodes’ Stephen Mangan) strikes a decidedly more earthbound pose.

The series follows the pair (who were real-life buddies) as they assist Scotland Yard detectives in solving inexplicable and possibly supernatural cases.

Houdini & Doyle premieres May 2 at 9/8c.
