FOX presented to the Television Critics Association at their summer press tour and filled in some details about the previously announced Sleepy Hollow/Bones crossover. It will be a special 2 hour Halloween event that airs on October 29th. The fun will start at 8pm, when Bones' Brennan and Booth will encounter Ichabod and Abbie, and they'll realize they are all trying to track down the same evidence. Of course they join forces to solve the mystery. Following that on Sleepy Hollow, Team Witness will need some help from modern science and will turn to Brennan and Booth to unlock 18th century secrets using 21st century science.
Showrunners from both shows are excited about the prospects:
Clifton Campbell (Sleepy Hollow): When the idea came about to create this crossover event for fans, our writers’ room was immediately energized. The creative freedom to merge these two worlds which, at face value, seem so different; but at their core have such striking similarities – mystery, intrigue and methodical deduction, wrapped up in such strong character partnerships – was a challenge that we all welcomed, and we believe that fans of both series will be very satisfied by the result. It was a terrific collaborative experience across the board and we are eager to see the fan reaction to Ichabod and Abbie working alongside Brennan and Booth.
Michael Peterson (Bones): The Bones-Sleepy Hollow crossover is like a great episode of The X-Files, where the Bones hour is the Scully, logic-based perspective and the Sleepy Hollow hour is more Fox Mulder-esque. Put them together, and it’s going to be a great two-hour event that fans of both programs are going to love.
