Netflix Nearing Deal To Give Joe Hill’s Locke & Key A Series Order

Netflix is nearing a deal to give Locke & Key the thing it’s been trying to get for a decade: A series order. After producing a new pilot at Hulu, that streaming giant decided to pass on the series, so Netflix has snatched it up and will retain showrunner Carlton Cuse and creator Joe Hill. This marks the first time the property, which also had a failed pilot at Fox in 2010 and a failed movie development at Universal, has been given a series order, and also provides Netflix with more comic book content after their myriad Marvel shows, forthcoming Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and their adaptation of The Umbrella Academy.

The Hulu pilot directed by Andy Muschietti (IT) will be scrapped and recast, with Muschietti unable to return for the Netflix version due to his IT: Chapter 2 commitments, though he and sister Barbara Muschietti will be credited as executive producers. Muschietti’s pilot starred Frances O’Connor, Nate Corddry, Jack Mulhern, Megan Carpentier and Jackson Robert Scott. O’Connor portrayed family matriarch Nina Locke, who moves her three children to Maine after her husband is brutally murdered. Insiders say Hulu’s new chief content officer Joel Stillerman (The Walking Dead) and senior vp Craig Erwich wanted to pick up Locke & Key for series, but the streamer’s new CEO Randy Freer gave the project a pass.

Locke & Key tells the story of the Locke family and their journey into Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all!

Carlton Cuse (The Strain, LOST) and comic creator Joe Hill are set to executive produce and write the pilot script for the Netflix show, based on the IDW Entertainment comic series written by Joe Hill with art by Gabriel Rodriguez. Andy and Barbara Muschietti  (IT, Mama) will executive produce alongside Lindsey Springer for Cuse’s production company Genre Arts. Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment will also serve as executive producers.

Netflix released the first images of Disenchantment, an animated fantasy series that features the voices of Abbi Jacobson, Nat Faxon, and Eric Andre. Created by Groening (The Simpsons, Futurama), the show takes place in the crumbling medieval kingdom named Dreamland and centers on the exploits of a hard-drinking princess named Bean (Jacobson), her plucky elf friend Elfo (Faxon), and her personal demon Luci (Andre) as they match wits with “ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.”

The series, whose 10-episode first season launches August 17, also will feature the voice talents of John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.

“Ultimately, Disenchantment will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you,” is how Groening described the show last year.

Miles Dale and Netflix on a new horror anthology series, Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight. The show, coming soon to the streamer, is a genre-defining anthology where Del Toro will present a collection of personally-curated stories that are both equally sophisticated and horrific.

In addition, he will handpick a team of the genre’s best writers and exciting new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life.

Guillermo del Toro is the writer and director of the Academy Award-winning film The Shape of Water, which earned four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score and Best Production Design. Del Toro is the creator of the critically acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning DreamWorks Trollhunters on Netflix, which will return for a third season May 25.

His previous films alternate between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as The Devil’s Backbone, and Pan’s Labyrinth, winner of three Academy Awards, and American studio movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II, the supernatural adventures Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and the science fiction monsters-versus-robots film Pacific Rim. Del Toro’s previous horror series credit includes The Strain, which aired for four seasons on FX and was based on the book by del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
