Comic-Con TV 2011: Locke and Key Pilot

As already reported in my previous feature, Locke and Key was amongst the pilots not picked up to series during Network Upfronts. But the adaption of the comic book series that failed to find a home on FOX, received a special screening of the pilot at this year's Comic-Con. IDW -publisher of the comics- received permission to air the single episode as a treat for its fans.

On hand for the panel was writer and producer of the pilot Josh Friedman. He offered up the screening as way to enjoy what they had done, rather than think about what could have been. Producer Robert Orci, and director Mark Romanek were also in attendance, along with Joe Hill, writer of the comic series. Almost all of the panel stressed that the pilot's airing was not in a bid to get the series picked up, but just to allow fans to see the work that went into it.

The pilot follows the lives of the Locke family as they relocate after their father's death. Their new home has a dark side, and supernatural events soon begin occurring. Despite fan reception being very positive for the pilot, as well as the critics who screened it, it is unlikely that this series will be seeing a revival.
