TV: Fox Orders ‘Locke & Key’ Pilot Episode!

After it was originally acquired by Dimension for feature film adaptation, I’ve been reading Joe Hill’s (Stephen King’s son) breathtaking and captivating “Locke & Key,” a super creepy, magical genre blender that’s now greenlit for a TV series over at Fox. From DreamWorks TV and exec producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the project had already been given a series commitment from Fox, but this now cements the plan to shoot a pilot. The hourlong is being adapted by scribe Josh Friedman, who created “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” for Fox. Hill’s original “Locke and Key” graphic novel series is about brothers who live in a mysterious New England mansion where a slew of magical keys are discovered. This is huge news on the heels of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” season premiere this Sunday — maybe “Preacher” is next?
