15 Classics That Need the Sherlock Treatment


Albert Camus’ The Plague

Because the world needs more feel-good stories on TV, why not an adaptation of Albert Camus’ classic The Plague? He may be slightly better known for The Stranger, but if you want to get some real traction out of a TV show, there’s something pretty compelling about adapting this rather dark story to the small screen. If it were set in modern times, they’d have a few more options when it comes to trying to combat the disease, but the basic premise could happen anywhere, at any time. Plagues are not as fun as they sound.
