Locke & Key - Passed on by Hulu, Being Shopped to Other Networks *Updated*



Sources say Hulu executives, including new chief content officer Joel Stillerman (who launched The Walking Dead on AMC) and senior vp Craig Erwich — who greenlit the pilot — wanted to pick up the drama but new CEO Randy Freer (who joined in October) had the final say and insisted on bypassing the drama about a mother (Frances O'Connor) who moves her family into a haunted house after the patriarch is brutally murdered. Sources say Freer ultimately did not like the show after sources say Hulu paid to keep the writers' room open long after the pilot. Seven scripts have already been completed. Hulu declined comment.




Thanks to Theusher for the heads up.

Actress Samantha Mathis mentions it in an interview.
I did a pilot for Hulu called Locke and Key but it didn’t get picked up by Hulu. It’s getting shopped around to Amazon and Netflix and Apple and everyone right now. Who knows, maybe that will end up some place.
