Sleepy Hollow co-creator and Underworld director Len Wiseman will lead the project, which is joined by Jerry Bruckheimer as executive producer. This is reported by the ComingSoon edition.
According to the plot, the main character of the series, Lucifer, got fed up with his duties as the Lord of Hell and, leaving his throne and kingdom, rushes to the magnificent and iridescent with all the colors of the rainbow Los Angeles, where he receives the true fun helping the local police department catch criminals.
