Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Fairy tales may be bigger than superheroes right now, at least when it comes to television. Deadline reports that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are working on a Sleepy Hollow television series through their own K/O Paper Products.
Kurtzman and Orci will re-team with Len Wiseman, who directed the pilot to the writers’ reboot of Hawaii Five-O and has Total Recall coming out Aug. 3. The modern-day supernatural thriller will focus on Ichabod Crane, who returns to his hometown of Sleepy Hollow and teams up with the female sheriff to “solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil.” The show, which is being pitched to networks now, will be the first coming out of Kurtzman and Orci’s K/O Paper Products through 20th Century Fox Television.
