'Locke & Key' lands at Fox
Net makes series commitment to Joe Hill comic adaptation
The TV series adaptation of Joe Hill's comic book "Locke & Key" has landed at Fox.
"Locke & Key"
The network has made a series commitment to the project, which is produced by Dreamworks TV and K.O. Paper Products through the latter's deal with 20th Century Fox TV.
"Star Trek" producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are on board to executive produce, along with Heather Kadin, Josh Friedman, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Ted Adams.
Hill, the son of Stephen King, penned "Locke & Key" with artist Gabriel Rodriguez. "Locke" chronicles the Locke children as they attempt to recover from their father's murder by a deranged high school student. The family moves to Lovecraft, Massachusetts, where the youngest Locke discovers trans-formative keys hidden within its walls.
The comic debuted in 2008 and is currently in its fourth installment.
Friedman ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") has been tapped as the project's lead writer.
Kurtzman and Orci are launching CBS' "Hawaii Five-0" this fall, in addition to working on Fox's "Fringe."
