Sleepy Hollow Johnny DeppThe network famous for hit shows like American Idol and The X Factor has just agreed to air the pilot episode of a new show based on "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

Fringe creators — and writers of the upcoming Star Trek 2 — Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are penning the script, which according to The Hollywood Reporter is described as "a modern-day supernatural thriller based on the 1820 short story in which Ichabod Crane partners with the town's local female sheriff to bring peace to a beleaguered community."

Underworld's Len Wiseman (and hubby to Kate Beckinsale) is set to direct the Fox project.

The Washington Irving short story has been interpreted many times. Many will remember Johnny Depp playing Crane in Tim Burton's 1999 feature film, Sleepy Hollow.
