More details have emerged regarding Sleepy Hollow, a modern-day supernatural drama from Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
In Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane finds himself transported to present day Sleepy Hollow, where troubles await the time-traveler.
Crane is described as a captain in the Revolutionary War, who is “catapulted to present day Sleepy Hollow, where he’s indicted for the murder of a police officer.” Not only does Crane have to prove his innocence in a future with which he’s unfamiliar, he had to convince a wary detective investigating the murder that he is from the 18th century.
Two actors have signed on for the FOX project; Orlando Jones (MadTV, Drumline) as Lt. Frank Williams, and Katia Winter (Dexter) as Ichabod Crane’s wife, who is a nurse with the 37th Regiment in the Revolutionary War.
Sleepy Hollow will be executive produced by Kurtzman, Orci, Len Wiseman and Heather Kadin. Co-writer Phillip Iscove, who came up with the idea for the series, will be a supervising producer.
