Directed by Lin Feng, Young Sherlock features an all-star cast led by Bosco Wong, Stephy Qi and Ma Tianyu.

In addition, TOKU will also feature the network premiere of the Japanese film Gachinko Running on Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. EST. Set in Kirikaze High, the story follows the constant battle for school supremacy between class cliques. When the balance is tipped by the new kids, all stakes are settled in a high-speed drift race.
