Saco filmmaker Kate Tracy launches Kickstarter for S(her)lock, a new web series

S(her)lock: The Web Series is a feminist, LGBTQA-positive, gender-swapped fresh take on the characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.


Living in 1990s Boston, Sherlock Holmes investigates domestic cases with her companion, Dr. Johanna Watson — only the pubic has no idea! ‘Inspector’ Lestrade claims credit for all of her greatest accomplishments. Can Holmes and Watson foil their foe and reclaim credit for their work? Find out in this six-episode web series, launching in 2015!

“It is safe to assume that as the Holmes story moves into its first feminist, queer-positive, gender-swapped, heroin-confronting vision, this detective ain’t gonna be no mouse.” — Portland Phoenix

What are our Objectives?

  • To present a fresh, feminist take on Sherlock Holmes
  • To assemble an inclusive cast and crew of women, members of the LGBTQA community, and people of color
  • To depict the weird and wacky world of Sherlock Holmes while remaining true to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original canon
