The information we had for Fox‘s Sleepy Hollow, when it was first picked up, was a little thin. The fact that it was Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Fringe, Star Trek Into Darkness) of course made it instantly a step above anything we’d expect from most new shows, but we remained nervously hopeful and waited.
The trailer, though, sold it for me, and not just because the man playing Ichabod Crane, Tom Mison, is a biscuit. There’s a quality to it that has definitely hooked me. Today Fox released a behind-the-scenes featurette that brings the beautifully produced show even higher up my Anticipated list. Check it out:
Featurette: Sleepy Hollow – Behind the Scenes
SLEEPY HOLLOW: From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci comes the adventure thriller SLEEPY HOLLOW. In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, pictured) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.
