It was announced a few weeks back that an adaptation of Joe Hill’s Locke and Key had been given a series commitment from Fox, and today the announcement has come that the first episode is officially on its way!
According to Variety Fox is getting a jump on pilot orders, greenlighting graphic novel adaptation “Locke and Key” from DreamWorks TV and exec producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
Twentieth Century Fox TV is producing along with DreamWorks TV and Kurtzman and Orci’s K.O. Paper Products banner. DreamWorks’ Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank are exec producing, along with K.O.’s Kurtzman, Orci and Heather Kadin; Josh Friedman; and IDW Publishing’s Ted Adams.
For those not playing along, Locke & Key revolves around three kids who end up watching over a secret, spooky New England mansion filled with mystical doors that transport them to different worlds and give them special powers (like turning into a ghost).
Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) will write the pilot. Look for more soon!
