Cuse, Lindsey Springer, IDW Media Holdings CEO Ted Adam, IDWE president David Ozer and Joe Hill also executive produce.

Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's Locke & Key is getting a second chance at the small screen.

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson will helm the pilot for Hulu's TV adaptation of the graphic novel series Locke & Key. He'll direct the pilot, but if Hulu decides to make more Locke & Key, he'll remain involved and direct a few more episodes before moving on to make a sequel to his Marvel hit.

This is a ideal fit for Derrickson, as it blends the styles of Doctor Strange with the deep roots he has in the horror genre.

Locke & Key, which has sold over a million copies worldwide, is a horror/fantasy series that follows the story of three siblings who discover magical keys in their new home in ME which grant them powers. The previous series was developed at FOX and received a series order with Miranda Otto, Sarah Bolger, Nick Stahl and Ksenia Solo starring, but the network backed off at the last minute after the pilot was produced. As it escapes, the three siblings and their friends must fight to contain it.

Cuse, whose time is winding down on Bates Motel and The Strain, is Locke & Key's showrunner. In 2013, Universal Pictures announced a film trilogy based on the comics, with Star Trek's Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci attached to produce, but that too, didn't go anywhere. Once Fox passed, they were hopeful about finding it a new home, but it went nowhere.
