Subject: Shakespeare & Watson Web Series at Trip City
For Immediate Release: Fictitious Time Traveling Victorian Era Master Detective And Famous Elizabethan Playwright Open A Detective Agency In Williamsburg Brooklyn – The Adventures Of Shakespeare & Watson: Detectives Of Mystery
The Adventures of Shakespeare & Watson Detectives of Mystery pairs William Shakespeare and Dr. John Watson as time traveling detectives who are trapped in the present after an accident with their time cane. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson have traveled to William Shakespeare’s era to solve “The Riddle of a Thousand Faces,” but Professor Moriarty sprang a clever ruse, breaking Sherlock’s “time cane,” causing a “temporal storm” that sends Sherlock and Moriarty to times unknown, and Shakespeare and Watson to the present. Together, the unorthodox partners have formed the premier detective agency in all of north Brooklyn to fight crime while trying to figure out a way to get back to their own eras.
