After some hefty interest from other networks, Fox has picked up Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's adaptation of the graphic novel Locke and Key, which is being adapted by Josh Friedman.

Locke and Key comes from Joe Hill, Stephen King's son, who has created a world about brothers who live in a mysterious New England mansion.

Following a shocking death that dredges up memories of their father's murder, Kinsey and Tyler Locke are thrown into choppy emotional waters, and turn to their new friend, Zack Wells, for support, little suspecting Zack's dark secret. Meanwhile, six-year-old Bode Locke tries to puzzle out the secret of the head key, and Uncle Duncan is jarred into the past by a disturbingly familiar face.

Twentieth Century Fox TV is producing along with DreamWorks TV.
