'Locke & Key' gets series order from Netflix

Netflix has officially picked up 'Locke & Key' as a new series after Hulu passed on the project earlier this year. The show will be based on the IDW comic book of the same name, which follows the Locke family after they move into the old family home and discover a series of magical keys that open portals throughout the building.

A series based on the comic has been in development for nearly eight years and as of now there is no projected date as to when the series might air. A pilot episode was developed by Hulu but Netflix is reportedly abandoning it and starting over from scratch.

The series is being written by Joe Hill, who also worked on the original comic and is being further developed by Carlton Cuse, Aron Eli Coleite and Meredith Averill.


Netflix is an American entertainment company founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph on August 29, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California. It specialises in and provides streaming media and video-on-demand online. In 2013, Netflix expanded into film and television production, as well as online distribution.
