FOX has set its new contemporary take on the legend of Sleepy Hollow, starring Nicole Beharie, to air on Monday nights this fall, at 9/8c.

Beharie will play Detective Abbie Archer, described as "a smart and tough detective in small town Sleepy Hollow. Poised to leave the town in a week for the FBI Academy, she has an unspoken reluctance about her decision. Her troubling past causes her to doubt her perceptive abilities and she's horrified as she witnesses the gory slaying of her partner and mentor, Sheriff August Grey. Barely able to speak about what she saw, only one person can corroborate her story -- Ichabod Crane, an unwilling fugitive from the past who claims to be a soldier in the Revolutionary War."

Beharie is joined by Orlando JonesTom Mison and Katia Winter, in a pilot that will see Ichabod Crane - a tested captain in the Revolutionary War - transported to present day Sleepy Holly, where he's charged with the murder of a police officer and has to prove his innocence, as well as convince a wary detective believe he's from the 18th century. 

Orlando Jones will play Lt. Frank Williams.

Alex Kurtzman (Fringe) and Bob Orci penned the pilot script as well as executive produced, with Phil IscoveHeather Kadin also exec produced, while Len Wiseman directed the pilot.
