A modern-day twist on Washington Irving’s classic, SLEEPY HOLLOW follows ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”), who is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. To save the enigmatic town of Sleepy Hollow – and the world – from unprecedented evil, Ichabod pairs up with Det. ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie, “Shame,” American Violet”), a young cop whose own supernatural experiences help the two form an unlikely bond.
