TV: Young Locke Cast in Fox’s ‘Locke & Key’

Now that “The Walking Dead” is rolling like a freight truck through AMC, my eyes are set on Fox’s Locke & Key, which next to “The Walking Dead” and “Preacher”, is one of my all-time favorite ongoing comics. Penned by Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son), Mark Romanek will be directing the pilot presentation that has cast Miranda Otto as the mother and now Sarah Bolger (The Moth Diaries) will play her daughter Kinsey. The series will tell the story of Nina Locke (Otto) and her three children, Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, who survive an unspeakable horror and attempt to rebuild their lives at Keyhouse, their family home in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. It is a mysterious New England mansion, with fantastic and transformative keys hidden inside its walls that are also being sought by a hate-filled and relentless creature with ties to the Locke family’s past who will stop at nothing to accomplish his sinister goals. I highly recommend reading. The art is beautiful.
