Who says esports and TV don't go well together? Call of Duty veteran, Jordan "JKap" Kaplan, will appear on CBS' TV show Elementary.

JKap is regarded as one of the best Call of Duty pro players in the scene. The veteran support player is the captain of Team EnVyUs, a team he's been with twice prior to his current stint with them. He has been in the pro scene since 2008, competing and dominating in titles such as Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Black Ops 2 and recently Infinite Warfare. 

According to Kevin Hitt, Senior Editor of Competitive Esports at WWG, the merge between the two mediums is nothing but good news. "Funny thing Elementary is one of my all-time favorite shows. I think it is great for esports personalities to get booked for shows on national television so that esports can be seen by an ever expanding audience. I cant wait for that episode!"

Jack "Courage" Dunlop, Host and Commentator for COD World League took note of the announcement and offered his thoughts on Twitter. 

It also seems like Elementary has no problem when it comes to further expanding their horizons. If you can have Call of Duty professionals in the show, why not stretch it out to other competitive games? In a reply to the tweet sent out by Elementary, someone inquired about the possibility of CS:GO players joining the fold. 

As Elementary said, it's time to "Get Hype!"
