After a failed television and movie adaptation, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s spectacular Locke & Key series will be getting another chance at heading to the small screen.
IDW Entertainment is currently developing the series, with Hill penning the pilot and serving as executive producer.
“Having Joe at the helm of the pilot ensures that the series will hold true to the brand that fans around the world have come to love,” explained IDW president David Ozer.
Said Hill of the announcement: “I love this story. The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can’t scare the pants off viewers everywhere.”
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!
