IDW Entertainment will be bringing the a Eisner Award-winning series Locke & Key to television. Joe Hill, writer and creator of the series, will be writing the pilot and serving as an executive producer.Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion will serve as executive producers alongside him. The series will be a straight-to-TV series and IDW Entertainment will retain the rights.
“I love this story,” said Hill of this truly terrifying series. “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.” He’ll be visiting the Keyhouse and Lovecraft, Massachusetts soon, and bringing viewers with him. The series format should give the many-years long tale adequate time to develop and to show both the interpersonal and inter-dimensional aspects of the tale.
