Spielberg, Kurtzman, Orci, and Friedman Bringing Locke and Key to TV

Entertainment Editor

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.
