Ichabod Crane is coming to your TV.
Fox has given a put-pilot commitment to an adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow from Fringe creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Ocri, EW has confirmed.
The duo’s version of Sleepy Hollow is a “modern-day supernatural thriller based on the 1820 short story,” a spokesperson for Fox confirmed. This isn’t Ichabod Crane’s first jump from the page – In addition to many other Headless Horseman projects in existence, Tim Burton directed a 1999 film, starring Johnny Depp as Crane.
It’s not clear at this time when the show is set to air, or if any casting decisions have begun.
