locke and key logo slice Locke & Key: Fox Officially Greenlights Pilot!

Deadline announced today that Fox has officially greenlit a pilot of “Locke & Key.” The show will be produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and adapted by Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”). “Locke & Key” is based on the IDW comic series of the same name, created by author Joe Hill. Here’s Amazon’s description of the series:

Locke And Key 02 Cover color by GabrielRodriguez 242x300 Locke & Key: Fox Officially Greenlights Pilot!Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all! Acclaimed suspense novelist and New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box) creates an all-new story of dark fantasy and wonder, with astounding artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez.

If the television series is half as good as the comic, then we’re in for a real treat. “Locke & Key” has been consistently great since the series launched in early 2008. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Hill’s work, do yourself a favor and buy a copy of his first novel, “Heart-Shaped Box.” You won’t be disappointed!
