Hulu has surprisingly passed on the television adaptation of Locke and Key. WME, which represents showrunner Carlton Cuse and director Andy Muschietti, and IDW Entertainment are holding screenings of the pilot in hopes of finding a new home for the show.

While, Chief Content Officer Joel Stillerman and Senior VP Craig Erwich wanted to pick up the series, new CEO Randy Freer passed on it. Sources say Freer did not like the show after Hulu paid to keep the writers room open long after the pilot.

Locke And Key is the story of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them... and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all.

The pilot starred Frances O'Connor as Nina Locke, Danny Glover as Joe Ridgeway, Jack Mulhern as Tyler Locke, Megan Charpentier as Kinsey Locke, Jackson Robert Scott as Bode Locke, and Owen Teague as Sam Lesser.
