LOCKE & KEY TV Series Coming From IDW Entertainment

Joe Hill’s comic book series Locke & Key had a TV pilot in 2010-11 that didn’t take off, and is again being developed into a TV series.   IDW Entertainment, which published the comic books, is developing the series.   Hill will write the pilot and executive produce. Circle of Confusion (The Walking Dead) is developing it internally with IDW, after which it will be taken to cable/digital networks.

Hill said, “I love this story.The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can’t scare the pants off viewers everywhere.”

Locke & Key centers around Nina Locke and her three children, who survive a terrifying experience, after which they attempt to rebuild their lives.   They live in Keyhouse in Lovecraft, Massachusetts, a mysterious mansion that contains transformative keys, which a relentless,  hateful  creature is after so that he can accomplish his evil goals.   

Ted Adams and David Ozer of IDW will executive produce, along with Circle of Confusion’s David Alpert and Rick Jacobs.
