Do you like moody, imaginative horror with a first-rate premise, based on a series of graphic novels by Joe Hill? Well, Fox doesn't—the network created a pilot for a potential TV series based on the critically acclaimed Locke & Key ... but they decided not to go forward with the show.
A pilot for a TV series based on Joe Hill's atmospheric Locke and Key graphic novel was one of the best shopped around in the 2010-11 season. And yet, the quirky story of a group of kids exploring a mysterious, mystical house sadly failed to get a pick up. But, the story may not end there.
You can't keep a good pilot down: After Fox passed on the TV adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's supernaturally sophisticated comic book—and Syfy flirted with picking up the expensive show—it seems that MTV is the latest network to think about signing on.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers, Fringe), Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Steven Spielberg (we don't have to ID him, do we?) are teaming up to turn Joe Hill's Locke & Key comic book series into a TV series—and with a sci-fi dream team like that, we're expecting big things. Wouldn't you?
