Ichabod Crane moves to the small town of Sleepy Hollow for veterinary college, but soon finds himself drawn into the town's dark park by its mysterious inhabitants.
This 1 hour horror TV pilot explores a darker, scarier, and modern take on the classic Legend of Sleepy Hollow tale.
I'm a big Halloween fan and grew up loving this classic tale. There have been many versions of this story over the years, but I wanted to create a modern version that focused more on how the town's inhabitants continue to live with the horrors of Sleepy Hollow - why do they stay in that town and what are their coping mechanisms for what they continue to witness?
The result is something that I think is a grittier, true horror piece that will leave viewers on the edge of their seat in each episode, while attaching them to real life horrors that exist in our every day world.
