Dreamboat and singer/possible dancer Jesse McCartney now has his next project McCartneyed up: Tyler, the male lead of the new FOX drama “Locke and Key,” based on the comic by Joe Hill. Here’s a synopsis, bizarrely devoid of superheroes:

“[T]he story of Nina Locke (Miranda Otto) and her three children, Tyler (McCartney), Kinsey (Sarah Bolger), and Bode (Skylar Gaertner) who, after the brutal murder of Nina’s husband Rendell Locke, return to Keyhouse, his old family home in Massachusetts. There, they are pestered by an evil entity that’s determined to hold the family hostage one way or another until it gets what it wants.”

This is going to be a huge hit – have you seen Glenn Beck‘s ratings? Evil entities are huge right now. (via Deadline)

The ubiquitous Nick Stahl has joined the cast for the television pilot Locke & Key, a Fox project that had originally been slated for summer consideration, but has recently been pushed back to fall, offering the refreshingly frank explanation, “We couldn’t make the dates.”  As long as that delightful play on words remains the title, an eager public will wait patiently. Locke & Key focuses on a family that, after the father’s murder, returns to his old house where they are haunted by a spirit named DODGE The spirit, which is of course evil, holds the family hostage unless it gets its way. Undoubtedly, we would learn more about DODGE and the family history as the series progresses. With this known, it should go without saying that this show is based on a graphic novel. Stahl would play the deceased’s younger brother who lives nearby. Stahl will join the existing cast, which includes Sarah Bolger and Miranda Otto.

This news, in conjunction with the Terra Nova premiere news yesterday, shows that Fox is making good on its promise to focus more on show development, perhaps realizing that American Idol won’t be their mealticket forever. While the premise of Locke & Key certainly doesn’t ensure that they’re developing good shows, they never spoke to the quality of their programming, just that they’d try harder.  (Deadline)
