The TV adaption of the comic by Stephen King’s son lands at the Fox network
Locke & Key is the story of the Locke children when the family moves back into the spooky family estate, Keyhouse, in Lovecraft, Massachusetts after the murder of their father. All kinds of weirdness ensues including shenanigans with hidden keys, out-of-body experiences, ghosts and haunted wells, as well as one of their dad’s murderers escaping from his detention centre thanks to some supernatural aid, and coming after them. Sounds perfect for Fox. Lots of good-looking teen characters potential (played, no doubt, by twenty-somethings).
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. Friedman, who worked on The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is tipped to be lead writer.
