Fox greenlights ‘Locke and Key’

Network to shoot Kurtzman and Orci's adaptation of graphic novel

Fox is getting a jump on pilot orders, greenlighting graphic novel adaptation “Locke and Key” from DreamWorks TV and exec producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

Project had already been given a series commitment from Fox, but this cements the plan to shoot a pilot. Hourlong is being adapted by Josh Friedman, who created “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” for Fox.

Twentieth Century Fox TV is producing along with DreamWorks TV and Kurtzman and Orci’s K.O. Paper Products banner. DreamWorks’ Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank are exec producing, along with K.O.’s Kurtzman, Orci and Heather Kadin; Friedman; and IDW Publishing’s Ted Adams.

The original “Locke and Key” graphic novel series is created and written by Joe Hill, Stephen King’s son, about brothers who live in a mysterious New England mansion. Gabriel Rodriguez handles the art.

DreamWorks Television and K.O Paper Products are producing the TV version through K.O’s deal with 20th Television. Friedman’s credits also include co-writing Steven Spielberg’s “War of the Worlds” for Paramount, and writing the Universal feature “The Black Dahlia.”

Fox already has several projects in play for next year, including the series order “Terra Nova”– also from 20th and DreamWorks TV, among others.
