It’s Sleepy time for Rorbeto Orci…
Fox has picked up the drama pilot Sleepy Hollow from the 39-year-old Mexican-American television writer/producer and his partner Alex Kurtzman.
Sleepy Hollow, which has Underworld helmer Len Wiseman on board to direct, is described as as a modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.
The project follows Ichabod Crane as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s local female sheriff to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil.
Orci and Kurtzman wrote the script with up-and-coming writer Phillip Iscove, on whose idea the project is based.
Kurtzman and Orci will executive produce Sleepy Hollow; and their studio-based K/O Paper Products produce.
