Hey, Look! It’s Benjamin Franklin in a Sleepy Hollow TV Spot

file_175499_0_sleepy-hollow-bannerHorror and history will continue to collide when Sleepy Hollow returns to Fox on September 22nd. A new TV spot has hit the web and while it features some footage we’ve seen before, this preview introduces Benjamin Franklin. A kite-flying, winking Benjamin Franklin. How he’ll factor into the show’s sophomore season is anyone’s guess, but his addition is amusing to me.

I hope he’s like super zany and has an over-the-top personality. Give us a Ben Franklin to remember, guys… Maybe he’ll be depicted as a genius, but a player. (I’ll let you decide if I’m being sarcastic or not.)

In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity’s last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie) to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.
