Sleepy Hollow Theme Music Nominated for an Emmy

 

A bright spot in an otherwise disappointing slate of Emmy® nominations announced yesterday, was the nod co-composers Brian Tyler (@BrianTyler) and Robert Lydecker got for Original Main Title Theme Music for their work on Sleepy Hollow. According to Lydecker's website, the haunting, perfectly-suited score (listen below) "is a composite of gothic orchestra and choir mixed together with a small ensemble of three antiphonal cellos, dulcimer, bells and other reversed sounds." The theme is also available for purchase on iTunes.

Congratulations to Brian and Robert on their nomination!

 

FOX Confirms Sleepy Hollow Premiere Date and Adds Encore Broadcast

 

FOX officially announced the premiere schedule for their fall slate of programs today, confirming that Sleepy Hollow will return on Monday, September 22nd. The show will air in the 9/8c slot, as it did last year, this time with the highly anticipated drama Gotham as a lead-in.

Also included in today's announcement was the scheduling of an encore presentation of the Sleepy Hollow premiere, called "Hellfire," on Thursday, September 25th. Unfortunately, the encore broadcast is for one week only, as Gracepoint will fill in that slot the following week.

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.
