“An unlikely team. An unbelievable mystery.” – that’s the tagline for Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow”, premiering Monday, September 16. What’s unbelievable to me is how this show got greenlit. Actually, it looks massively expensive and fairly dumb so I guess that falls in line with standard Hollywood logic.
“Sleepy Hollow,” from “Transformers” team Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, finds Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) being resurrected to find a world on the brink of doom. It’s “a modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic. Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie) to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers.”
Len Wiseman directed the pilot.
