The Locke & Key comics were first released in 2008, selling out the first print run in a single day, and were illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez and written by Joe Hill (whom I am required by internet law to point out is Stephen King’s son, or I will be eaten by a grue). The TV and film rights were very quickly bought by Dimension, and now something is finally in development:
Steven Spielberg, via DreamWorks TV, is teaming with mega-hyphenates Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers, Fringe) and writer/exec producer Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) to turn Joe Hill’s Locke & Key comic series into a major TV franchise. [Vulture]
Power team, assemble! Form of: show that will be advertised to the wrong demographic and shuffled into several inappropriate time slots till premature cancellation. That’s right, it’ll probably air on Fox.
