SALISBURY — Nine o’clock Monday nights will become appointment television for fans of “Sleepy Hollow,” which Fox announced today will air this fall in the primetime spot.

“Sleepy Hollow,” the new series that will launch in September with a pilot filmed extensively in Salisbury, landed at 9 p.m. Mondays, once Fox’s best hour for scripted TV, Newsday.com reports.

“Sleepy Hollow” is the “big winner” in Fox’s fall lineup, Newsday.com said. Encores will air on Friday nights.

Just-released spooky promotional photos for the fantasy series show the four lead actors in front of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Salisbury, with the Headless Horseman fast approaching on his white steed.

Twentieth Century Fox transformed much of downtown Salisbury into the town of Sleepy Hollow for the pilot, but it’s not clear yet where the studio will film the series.

If 20th Century Fox chooses Salisbury, film crews will return this summer.

“Sleepy Hollow” was created by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, whose best-known credit is “Lost,” and stars British actor Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane.

In this modern-day retelling of Washington Irving’s classic, Ichabod Crane 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 to unravel a mystery that dates back to the founding fathers.
