SLEEPY HOLLOW: What You Need to Know About the New Fox Series

September 16, 2013 by  

There are approximately one million new shows debuting this season*, and it’s going to get difficult to keep track of them all.

To help you out, for every new show, I’m going to basically create a hub of info on the day of the premiere — pilot photos, my quick take on the pilot (or what I’ve seen so far), what’s been written about it so far, and when you can watch it.

SLEEPY HOLLOW - From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci comes the adventure thriller SLEEPY HOLLOW. In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, third from L) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie, R) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.

*Maybe not scientifically correct. But close enough.

Fox’s description: “After being resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) finds himself in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, where he quickly realizes that evil has awoken with him. When Sheriff August Corbin (guest star Clancy Brown) is killed by the infamous Headless Horseman, Ichabod forms an unlikely bond with Detective ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie), a young cop who has her own childhood supernatural experiences. Together, the two embark on a mission to stop evil and uncover mysteries dating back to the founding of our country. Captain FRANK IRVING (Orlando Jones) hesitates to believe Ichabod’s tales of supernatural evil. But when Ichabod’s former wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter), provides clues about impending evil, they all begin to realize that this town is anything but sleepy in the all-new “Pilot” series premiere episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW.”

My take: Fun, enjoyable, and hitting all the right notes, the premise might sound silly (and I completely had my doubts before viewing the pilot), but if you can buy into it, the pilot sets up one of the most intriguing new worlds to explore this television season. Plus, the chemistry between leads Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie is electric.

SLEEPY HOLLOW premieres tonight at 9 PM on Fox.
