They're still making this, eh?
Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" TV series, originally announced last summer, has cast three leads, according to Deadline.com. Orlando Jones ("MAD TV"), Katia Winter ("Dexter" Season 7; pictured right) and Nicole Beharie (SHAME; pictured below) are all on board the project, which has a pilot commitment at the network.
The series was created by STAR TREK writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and the pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman. Here's the breakdown of the plot:
A modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, the show follows Ichabod Crane as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s Detective Abbie Archer (Beharie) to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil. Abbie is about to leave for the FBI Academy when she witnesses the brutal murder of someone close to her.
Jones plays Lt. Frank Williams, the serious and sternly professional detective transferred to Sleepy Hollow to investigate a double homicide. Swedish actress Winter will play Katrina, Crane’s wife.
Ichabod Crane has still not been cast. "Sleepy Hollow" will likely arrive in the fall.
