    Interesting. I am excited, as I have been impatiently waiting for a new entry with the undead Hessian...

    sounds interesting...

    so are we to assume that the crimes/mysteries within the series will be supernatural-based?

    and let's hope that if this DOES see the light of day, that it's just as atmospheric and dark and as appropriately creepy as the Burton film...

    Kurtzman and Orci are responsible in part for one of my favorite series on television right now (Fringe) and the first enjoyable CBS procedural in ages (Hawaii Five-0), so they've got my attention.

    I'm just not sure Wiseman's the right guy for it. I like him, but I like him on more action oriented stuff. This seems like it should have a dark, gothic feel... I guess Underworld somewhat falls into that category, but that's still mostly action IMO.

    I doubt it. First it'll need an official pilot order, that'll come early next year. Then casting and shooting. Then whether or not the network orders it to series in May. Then, we'll either see it next fall or early 2014.

    Lets hope it's a fall show.

    The CW also has a modern day Sleepy Hollow drama in development.

    Yeah and it depends on how their new shows do, since Fox has limited primetime real estate with The X-Factor and American Idol along with Sundays and Tuesdays airing comedies.

    1. Fringe will be gone so that opens up 12-13 weeks.
    2. The Following if a hit will only have 15 episode seasons to allow Kevin Bacon to film movies.
    3. Bones could end but I think it lasts until spring 2014. What is the contract situation with the stars?
    4. The Mob Doctor could fail.
    5. Touch could also be canceled or remain as a Friday show.

    Fox only has 2 new dramas this year so it will be in tough but it would be great to see it launch next Fall on Mondays with Bones as a lead in. Or would Fox ever think of shrinking their Sunday night animation lineup for the fall and air a drama in the old X-Files slot?

    Family Guy still wins their timeslot but ratings have shrunk for the past few seasons and The Simpsons finishes 3rd and Bob's Burgers, American Dad and Cleveland Show are weaker than The Simpsons.

    They could air Cleveland 730pm/ The Simpsons 800pm/ Family Guy 830pm for 13 weeks and give Sleepy Hallow a 2 hour premiere before the animated shows debut so it can finish by the end of January and to let American Dad and Bob's Burgers on the schedule.

    I was hoping it would be sooner. :( Do you work for a network Shifty? I've never seen anyone able to analyse TV show placements like you before, you sound like you're pitching a schedule to a boss.

    Definitely interesting, I like the story of Sleepy Hollow. I'll be alert for whenever they plan to release it.

    No I wish I did sometimes. Just a hobby of mine that has grown over the years.

    One thing I have to wonder about with this.... how will it work as a series? Can you really get a whole series-worth of stories from the Headless Horseman?

    It seems like its just going to be Fox's version of Grimm and Supernatural.

    They get to use the Sleepy Hallow name, setting and likely Headless Horseman as the 'big bad' but Crane will be working with a female partner to solve mysteries in the town.

    The Revolutionary War.... I thought this was supposed to be modern day.

    Could Ichabod be immortal? Hmm...

    Okay, the article from The Hollywood Reporter makes it more clear...
    Casting suggestion for Ichabod: Tim Roth. :o:up:

    I literally live next to the real Sleepy Hollow. Which means I will probably hate this show due to all the inaccuracies.

    This sounds stupid. Why does it have to be a modern retelling? It's basically sounds like a cop/detective/investigative procedural wrapped with a hint of supernatural elements - so basically it's Grimm.

    I gotta agree. Who gives a **** about Ichabod? It's the headless horseman and dreary colonial setting that make the story interesting. Not a befuddled detective in modern times. Now I am about as interested in this as tree moss.

    I'm more interested in this now, knowing that he's a man out of time, than I was when we thought it'd be completely modern. I'm gonna give it a shot.

    I'm really surprised they didn't go with a more recognizable actor.
