Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Josh Friedman are all on board for the project which is still searching for a network. First released in 2008, Locke & Key revolves around three kids who end up watching over a secret, spooky New England mansion filled with mystical doors that transport them to different worlds and give them special powers (like turning into a ghost). The source material was created by Joe Hill, the son of author Stephen King. Fans of "Quantum Leap" will remember that it was actually Dr. Sam Beckett who was responsible for inspiring most of King's major works. Considering that Hill was probably heavily influenced by his father, I think it's safe to add "Locke & Key" to Dr. Beckett's long list of time traveling accomplishments, right along side saving Jackie Kennedy and inventing the Heimlich Maneuver. Godspeed, Dr. Beckett, wherever you are. (Vulture via Movie Line)
