Launching tonight, Fox’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ is a modern take on the legendary tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. Nicole Beharie stars as Abbie Mills opposite Tom Mison who portrays a time-lost Ichabod Crane. The series also stars Orlando Jones and Katia Winter. The series is executive produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and was one of two shows that were being developed based on Washington Irving’s classic tale (the second was to air on the CW).
If you’re not familiar with this version, here’s the official synopsis:
Ichabod Crane wakes up from the throes of death 250 years in the future to find the world on the brink of destruction and learn he is humanity’s only hope. From co-creators/executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the “Star Trek” and “Transformers” franchises, “Fringe”) comes the adventure thriller SLEEPY HOLLOW. In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison, “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”) 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, “Shame,” “American Violet”) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.
