Fans of the Locke and Key comic were pretty disappointed when word came out that Fox was planning on passing on the pilot for the show. Well good news for people hoping to see it get picked up as Deadline reports that the series based on the Joe Hill penned graphic novel could end up at MTV. The pilot written by Josh Friedman and directed by Mark Romanek was produced by 20th Century Fox, who ultimately decided to pass on the project due to the cost of producing the series. Subsequent screenings of the pilot at San Diego Comic-Con were so well received that a DVD of the project eventually ended up in the hands of MTV programming chief David Janollari, who liked it enough to warrant meetings. So keep those fingers crossed that it may see the light of day soon. Until then enjoy the trailer that has every so excited for this series.
