Those of you still reeling from the sound of Benedict Cumberbatch’s American accent need to pull yourselves together fast and get ready for StartUp, a new 10-episode drama about a group of tech entrepreneurs in Miami.

A trailer released yesterday (April 20) shows Martin Freeman as Phil Rask, an FBI agent who’s investigating the cryptocurrency they’ve set up and is intent on bringing them down.

A crypto-what now? Sounds like something Martin’s mate Sherlock would know about.

In his sights are The OC’s Adam Brody, who plays Nick Talman, a sharp and intelligent financier who’s teamed up with Ronald Dacey, a gangster played by The Blacklist’s Edi Gathegi, and hacker Izzy Morales (Otmara Marrero) to fund a company with dirty money.

Intrigued? Before you hit play, ready yourself to hear Watson as you’ve never heard him before (granted, Martin played a Minnesotan in Fargo, but this accent is something special):

Now, come on, be honest: how many of you are imagining a version of Sherlock set in the U.S. right now? Stranger things have happened.

StartUp starts up this fall on online service Crackle.
