Last week we reported that Steven Spielberg was involved in an attempt to bring the IDW Publishing series Locke & Key to the small screen. As is often the case when early rumors start creeping out of H’wood, things are going to change.  Today, Variety is reporting that Fox has snagged the rights to produce the Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez tale and have committed to giving the book a series.

    Darn. They’ll show the episodes out of order, misadvertise the premise of the show, pre-empt it for football, then bitch about the ratings and cancel after a season, maybe 2. Lets see, 6 issue arcs, 6 arcs, thats 36 issues. Or 36 episodes. Hmm. Not quite a full two seasons. With some cramming, I guess you could make one 13 ep season. Or will they stretch it, and make each arc a season, for 6 seasons? That sounds like a money maker. But given the slow start of the first arc, I think maybe it will be 2 arcs per season, for a 3 year run. ANd I have officially overthought this.

    Fox also just spent a bunch of money on this new show Lone Star and they advertised like crazy on it and then they cancelled it after only 2 episodes. The first episode was watched by 4 million viewers and the second by 3.2 million. That’s a lot of viewers for something like Locke and Key, I hope they don’t dump this show after one episode.
