What to expect: Washington Irving gets the serialized TV treatment in this mythology heavy drama that has Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) being transported to the modern-day only to discover the Headless Horseman has made the journey as well.
Mison says: ''It's a hard balance, because we don't want the fish-out-of-water story to be the main drive of the piece. Ichabod and Abby Mills have a job to do. They have to stop the impending apocalypse, so if there were lots of bits of Ichabod trying to work a microwave, that may interfere with our main story. It's still definitely there, and I think it's in the right amount. Occasionally the modern world creeps up on him and he finds he's out of his element.'' Keith Staskiewicz
