NEW YORK (January 24, 2013)--The Fox network said Thursday it has given the go-ahead for a pilot episode of the supernatural drama "Sleepy Hollow," based on Washington Irving's much-read short story about a ghostly Headless Horseman who rides through the village in search of his head.
The producers who made the just-ended series “Fringe” are creating the show.
A pilot is a prospective first episode of a series being considered.
The CW network has its own script about a Sleepy Hollow show that's in development, but the network says no pilot has been ordered.
Sleepy Hollow sits along the Hudson River about 25 miles north of Manhattan.
A 1999 "Sleepy Hollow" movie starred Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane.
