Fox has given a pilot commitment to a TV series adaptation of the classic 1820 supernatural thriller short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" reports The Live Feed.

This contemporary version partners Ichabod Crane with the town's local female sheriff to bring peace to a beleaguered community. No word on the involvement of a headless horseman.

"Fringe" creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will executive produce and are attached to write the script alongside Phillip Iscove. "Underworld" and "Total Recall" helmer Len Wiseman will direct the pilot and also executive produce.
