Pilot Season: The Sixth Gun, Sleepy Hollow Updates

The entertainment industry is pushing into pilot season, that time when networks load up on material, give the green light order to pilots for potential television shows and, overall, spend a lot of money on projects that might not even happen.  While it’s tough to tell what will hit and what will miss (most pilots will never been seen beyond a network office), we’ll do our best to keep you posted on what might be coming to the small screen near you.

We’ll begin with The Sixth Gun.  NBC has apparently ordered up a pilot for this title from Carlton Cuse, whose credits include Lost and the upcoming Bates Motel, says EW.

Based on the Oni Press comic book, thes story is set “during the darkest days of the Civil War when wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.”

Meanwhile, Fox is indeed moving forward with Sleepy Hollow, ordering up a pilot from Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

Kurtzman and Orci will write alongside Phillip Iscove. The show will follow Ichabod Crane’s adventures as he teams with the local law enforcement of Sleepy Hollow (including the town’s female sheriff).  Len Wiseman was previously reporte as attached to direct the pilot.
