The Locke & Key TV series may not be dead after all. Again.
After being passed on by Fox at the pilot stage and shopped around to other networks, Deadline reported Wednesday that MTV is interested in the show — at least mildly so. The post basically boils down to two factors, that the trailer has attracted a lot of buzz on YouTube (which hasn’t gone unnoticed by those in the biz), and that MTV programming chief David Janollari has seen the pilot and liked it. Yet Janollari also hasn’t talked to the producers and the show may very well be cost prohibitive for a basic cable network, so it may not necessarily mean anything. But that’s at least a hint of renewed hope.
This news came the same day as Newsarama’s own Jill Pantozzi (positively) reviewed the Locke & Key pilot in the latest installment of Hey, That’s My Cape.
