Reports are swarming the internet that Fox has picked up acclaimed graphic novel series Locke & Key. According to Variety:

Twentieth Century Fox TV is producing along with DreamWorks TV and Kurtzman and Orci’s K.O. Paper Products banner. DreamWorks’ Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank are exec producing along with K.O.’s Heather Kadin and IDW Publishing’s Ted Adams. Steven Spielberg had been involved with the project early on but he’s no longer an exec producer.

“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.
