The CW’s Sleepy Hollow drama has landed at Warner Bros. TV. The project was pitched to the network last month with no studio attached, and has now been laid off at one of the CW’s sibling studios, Warner Bros.
The CW was in talks for the pitch, a contemporary take on Washington Irving’s short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, when another Sleepy Hollow drama project hit the marketplace, one co-written by Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci and directed by Len Wiseman. The development led to the CW pushing the pause button in the negotiations to reaccess the situation. The network eventually proceeded with buying the project, described as a boundary-pushing horror story for television. (The Kurtzman/Orci drama landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment.)
