Steven Spielberg and Fringe's Kurtzman/Orci to Turn the Graphic Novel Locke & Key into a TV Show

Graphic novels don't always translate when brought to life for TV or the movies, as the underwhelming box office for Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World made pretty clear. That said, the success of X-Men and Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight-powered Batman reboot has inspired Hollywood to keep trying. The latest example: Vulture hears Steven Spielberg, via DreamWorks TV, is teaming with mega-hyphenates Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers, Hawaii Five-O, Fringe) and writer/exec producer Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) to turn Joe Hill's Locke & Key comic series into a major TV franchise. Oh, and did we mention that Hill is Stephen King's son?
