Hulu Orders ‘Locke And Key’ Pilot From ‘Bates Motel’ EP Carlton Cuse

Locke & Key is getting another stab at becoming a TV series.

Hulu has given a pilot order to an adaptation of the IDW comic book, written by the comic’s author Joe Hill and executive-produced by Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel, The Strain), our sister site Deadline reports.

The horror/fantasy drama follows a family that, in the wake of the patriarch’s murder, moves from California to Massachusetts. There, the mother and her three kids move into an estate called Key House to be close to the deceased’s brother. Things then get very eerie as a set of unusual keys prove to unlock all sorts of unsettling discoveries around the manor, including a well where a mysterious girl is trapped.

Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) will direct the pilot and is expected to helm additional episodes if the project is ordered to series. Cuse will serve as showrunner, with Hill and Derrickson also executive-producing.

Locke & Key was previously adapted by Fox during the 2010-11 development season into a pilot, written by Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek: Into Darkness, Fringe). It starred Mark Pellegrino, Miranda Otto, Jesse McCartney, Sarah Bolger, Skylar Gaertner and Nick Stahl. Although the project did not receive a series greenlight, the pilot for the cult fave title was screened at San Diego Comic-Con in 2011.
