This on-set picture is your first look at FOX TV's pilot Sleepy Hollow
, the supernatural series which star Nicole Beharie
as Detective Abbey Archer and Tom Mison
as Ichabod Crane. Filming is underway in Gastonia, NC; the pic comes from the Gaston Gazette
, which spoke to Bob Orci, series' Executive Producer and co-creator.
Orci explained the scene saying, "Ichabod has been arrested after waking up here in the present day,"
adding, "there's a Rip Van Winkle element to it because he's been asleep in a cave for 200 years. He has no idea if he's dreaming or what's happening.
" Orci elaborated stating, “Obviously the things he’s saying make him seem like he’s nuts. So he’s being escorted by a detective to a psychiatrist in this scene.”
And apparently detective Archer (Beharie) begins forming a bond with Crane after she starts gradually believing what Crane tells her. I'm not too familiar with the story and haven't seen Tim Burton's adaptation, so I don't know if this is what happens in the original.
To recap, Sleepy Hollow
is based on the short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
, and the story follows Ichabod Crane who partners with Sleepy Hollow's female detective to solve mysterious and supernatural occurrences in the town, which is said to be ravaged by a battle between good and evil.
also stars Orlando Jones
and Katia Winter.
Nicole Beharie will be seen next in Brian Helgeland
's Jackie Robinson biopic 42 as Rachel "Isum" Robinson.
