Orlando Jones and Katia Winter have inked a deal to become the first two cast members to come aboard Fox's upcoming Sleepy Hollow television series.

The series will center Ichabod Crane, who is described as a captain of the Revolutionary War. The former history professor gets thrown into a present day Sleepy Hollow where he is accused of the murder of a officer of the law. He takes on the task of proving his innocence and convincing a suspicious detective to beleive he is a time traveler from the 18th century.

Orlando Jones will portray Lt. Frank Williams, who is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate a double homicide. Dexter's Katia Winter is set to play Ichabod Crane's wife, who is a nurse in the 37th Regiment in the war.


Len Wiseman is directing the pilot, which was written by Fringe's Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
