This adaptation is based on the graphic novel written by Joe Hill, which ran from 2008 – 2013. Synopsis is as follows:
“Locke and Key revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that give them an array of powers. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys and will stop at nothing to attain them.”
The project was initially to be aired on Fox for the 2010-11 season, but wasn’t able to get off the ground. Then, there was the idea of turning it into a film before landing a chance at Hulu in April of last year. After viewing the pilot, Hulu CEO Randy Freer decided to pass on the project.
