SLEEPY HOLLOW - Official Trailer | FOX Broadcasting
Hey awesome nerds!
One of the things I love looking forward to as the seasons change is television. Yes, television has been putting on a variety of hit shows for quite some time now which have become favorites of mine, such as: Scandal, Hawaii Five-0, Grey's Anatomy, Game of Thrones, Falling Skies, The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Once Upon A Time, Grimm...and these are just the beginning. I can go on and on listing my favorite TV shows. The great thing, too, is that these shows run during different seasons, not all, but some do; hence, I do not have too much conflict for recordings on my DVR...haha!!
Now, as the fall season approaches, new TV shows are "on the table" to air on several networks. This one show in particular on FOX has caught my eye recently...Sleepy Hollow!!!
What's the show about?
Welcome to Sleepy Hollow, the thrilling new mystery-adventure drama from co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving's classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is resurrected oand pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. Revived alongside Ichabod is the infamous Headless Horseman who is on a murdeorus rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Bound to the Headless Horseman by a blood spell cast on the battlefield of the American Revolution, Ichabod quickly realizes that stopping Headless is just the beginning, as the resurrected rider is but the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
As this re-invented Ichabod finds himself in present-day Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town and a world he no longer recognizes. All that is brutally familiar are Headless and Ichabod's determination to annihilate this immortal being. It's a mission he must complete quickly, as Headless already has viciously slain Sheriff August Corbin (Clancy Brown). Grey served both as mentor and father figure to Detecitve Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie), a young cop whose own supernatural experiences help her form an unlikely bond with Ichabod. But Sleepy Hollow's head of police Captain Frank Irving (Orlando Jones), isn't buying any of this.
In fact, the only person who is on Abbie's side is Ichabod. His extensive first-hand knowledge of our secret American history, coupled with her superior profiling and modern threat assessment skills, will make them a formidable duo as they work together to triumph over evil. The complex pasts of Ichabod and Abbie, from Ichabod's inclusion in the powerful and secretive Freemasons Society and the ghostly appearance of his late wife, Katrina (Katia Winter), to Abbie's childhood visions, will help them solve the intricate puzzles of Sleepy Hollow in order to protect its future.
As history repeats itself, the oddly-linked pair will draw on the real stories and hallowed secrets this nation was founded on in their quest to stop an increasingly vicious cycle of evil.
Sleepy Hollow is from K/O Paper Products in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is co-created by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Phillip Iscove and Len Wiseman.
