Steven Spielberg and his partners Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are bringing the Joe Hill written and Gabriel Rodriguez illustrated comic Locke & Key to TV with Josh Friedman of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles‘ helming the project.
According to New York Magazine the comic is set to be made into a “major TV franchise.” Originally Kurtzman and Orci wanted to turn the comic into a full-length movie, but were happy to move forward with a TV show when Friedman came on-board.
If you’re unfamiliar with Locke & Key it features three kids who watch over an old mansion that’s full of various adventures that can be found through portals. As the kids travel through various worlds found through the mansions rooms they receive superpowers which they can use to fight evil.
No word on what network will get the show, however Fox is believed to be the front runner as they currently work to secure a deal with DreamWorks TV
