Fox orders Locke & Key pilot

From DHD – Fox has greenlit a pilot for Locke & Key, the Kurtzman and Orci produced adaptation of Joe Hill’s graphic novel. Adapted by Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), project hails from 20th Century Fox TV and Dreamworks TV. If picked up to series, Friedman will serve as showrunner. Heather Kadin and Ted Adams will also produce.

Locke & Key tells the story of Nina Locke 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.

Graphic Novel Description:

Locke & Key was nominated for an Eisner award for best limited series and is written by none other than Stephen King’s son.

Sounds interesting – and if Fox likes the pilot, we might be seeing this series come summer…
