Pilot written by Joe Hill, with “Doctor Strange’s” Scott Derrickson set to direct

Hulu has picked up the pilot “Locke & Key” from executive producer Carlton Cuse and writer Joe Hill, TheWrap has learned.

“Locke & Key” follows three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.

The horror-fantasy series is an adaptation of the IDW comic book series of the same name by Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez.

Cuse will serve as showrunner and executive produce alongside Hill. “Doctor Strange’s” Scott Derrickson is set to direct multiple episodes. Carlton Cuse Productions’ Lindsey Springer will also serve as executive producer with IDW’s Ted Adams and David Ozer.

The pilot pickup comes as Cuse’s A&E drama “Bates Motel” is set to air its series finale on Monday, April 24. The prolific producer also has “The Strain” at FX, “Colony” at USA and an upcoming Jack Ryan series at Amazon.
