Fans of the hit crime drama TV series Sherlock, which airs in the United States on PBS MASTERPIECE, will have a chance to investigate Sherlock first hand. UK-based Massive Events will bring Sherlocked The Official Sherlock Convention to the United States for the first time ever, May 26-28 at the LAX Marriott, 5855 West Century Blvd., Los Angeles, 90045.

Throughout the weekend, celebrity guests from Sherlock scheduled to appear include:  Andrew Scott (Jim Moriarty), Mark Gatiss (Mycroft Holmes),

Key behind-the-scenes guests sharing the stage will include Steven Moffat (writer), Sue Vertue (producer and production manager), and Arwel Wyn Jones (production designer) who will provide new insights and interesting anecdotes about the production.

The host for the weekend is the multi-talented Tony Lee, famed screenwriter and comic writer who’s a #1 New York Times best-selling author of comics, screenplays, and audio dramas including Doctor Who, Superboy, Spider-Man, Star Trek and more.

In addition to the celebrity appearances, the non-stop auditorium show will feature videos presentations, trivia contests and live auctions of unique collectibles and props.
