Sleepy Hollow at SDCC 2014: Off Site Event

Variety is reporting that there will be a Sleepy Hollow off-site event during San Diego Comic Con later this month that lets you virtually experience being chased by the Headless Horseman, via Oculus Rift technology. The writer's room got a taste of it recently - you can see showrunner Mark Goffman trying it out above!

The event will run throughout the Con (Thursday - Sunday), from 9am - 6pm in the Petco Interactive Zone, which is in the parking lot next to Petco Park. Cast and creatives will also be appearing (for a signing, perhaps?), though no specifics are available yet on the timing of that. As soon as those details are released, they'll be posted here.

More Sleepy Hollow Season 1 DVD Details

 

FOX has issued the official press release regarding the Season 1 Blu-ray/DVD, and it contains more details about what we can expect from that nice long list of extras that was previously announced. Most interesting, perhaps, is that Tom and Nicole will be heard doing commentary for the 2 part finale, along with Alex Kurtzman and Mark Goffman.

Dread Central posted the following excerpt from the release:

Created by the writers of Star Trek (2009) and Transformers (2007) comes this suspenseful and witty series inspired by Washington Irving’s supernatural classic.

Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), a British expatriate who dies in the American Revolution, is revived in upstate New York during the time of the cell phone – as is the evil Headless Horseman, who plans to annihilate mankind! Teaming with a feisty police lieutenant (Nicole Beharie), Crane races to vanquish the newly unearthed dark forces – or face the impending apocalypse.

Sleepy Hollow Panel Announced for SDCC

 

Details of the Sleepy Hollow panel at San Diego Comic Con have been announced! The cast (Tom, Nicole, Orlando, Katia, John Noble and Lyndie) and the producers (Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Len Wiseman, Mark Goffman and Heather Kadin) will be on hand in room 6BCF to screen exclusive footage and talk about the show, followed by a fan Q&A. The panel will be on Friday, July 25th from 5:45pm-6:45.

Last year, the pilot premiered at SDCC to an audience who had no idea what to expect. This year's reception may be just a little bit different, so expect Sleepy Heads lining up early, and maybe even an Ichabod Crane cosplayer or two!
