Jerry Bruckheimer Renames Science-Investigator ShowS

Eleventh Hour, the cult British TV series starring Patrick Stewart as a scientist who investigates abuses of science for the government, is getting a new name in its U.S. incarnation, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The American version, starring Rufus Sewell, will be called Elemental. Bruckheimer made a $4 million pilot that wowed CBS, and the show will be appearing as part of CBS' fall schedule. As in the British version, Sewell will be a college professor who "helps government bureacrats deal with thorny scientific conundrums ranging from cloning to global warming." And he'll have a hawt female bodyguard, played by Marley Shelton. (Looks like Buffy's Marc Blucas also has a regular role.) [Wired]
