Two articles have been posted about Sleepy Hollow - both have great things to say about about the team behind the show and are hoping it gets picked up.
The first is from TVRage.com:
"The next FOX pilot in our "Eagerly Anticipating" category is the supernatural drama 'Sleepy Hollow' from Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Described as a modern–day supernatural thriller based on "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (a classic of American literature), 'Sleepy Hollow' follows Ichabod Crane as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s local female sheriff to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil. Kurtzman, one of the writers on 'Sleepy Hollow,' wrote for 'Fringe' as well as sixty-seven episodes of 'Hawaii Five-0.' Kurtzman's feature writing work includes 2009's 'Star Trek' and 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.' Needless to say, he is considered a writing heavy-hitter, making the buzz around 'Sleepy Hollow' increase with each passing day.
'Sleepy Hollow' will star Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane in a potentially starmaking role. The British actor has talent but has yet to receive his big break; success on 'Sleepy Hollow' could catapult him to the A-List. Besides, anything supernatural is bound to find an audience--particularly for a serialized television narrative where each episode can take you in a bold new direction.
Much of the success of 'Sleepy Hollow' will come down to the appearance and tone of the supernatural setting. Knowing FOX, this shouldn't be a problem; I'm expecting a visual feast to accompany Kurtzman's screenplay."
The second, from Zap2It.com:
"Pros and cons: On the page, the pilot presents an exciting new take on a classic story. The how and why of Ichabod making his way to present day is part of a mythology that doesn't seem so dense as to turn away viewers. It doesn't hurt that Kurtzman and Orci have plenty of experience juggling episodic mysteries with an overarching story from their five season with "Fringe."
Mison and Beharie aren't exactly established talent, so it's hard to say whether the two will handle the lead roles well, but the diversity in the pilot cast overall should be admired. (Beharie and Jones, both playing law enforcement, are African-American.)
The script is developed exceptionally well, with a couple of wicked reveals in the final two acts that are sure to keep viewers hooked, initially. Whether Kurtzman and Orci can keep that up remains to be seen. Hopefully, we'll get the chance."
They may not be as familiar with Tom as we are, so we obviously have no doubts about how fantastic he will be!
