NEW YORK (AP) — The quiet suburban New York village Sleepy Hollow is a hot topic among television creators.

The Fox network said Thursday it has given the go-ahead to make a pilot episode of the supernatural drama "Sleepy Hollow," based on Washington Irving's much-read short story about a ghostly Headless Horseman who rides through the village in search of his head. The show is created by the producers who made the just-ended series "Fringe."

A pilot is a prospective first episode of a series being considered.

The CW network has its own script about a Sleepy Hollow show that's in development. But the network says no pilot has been ordered.

Sleepy Hollow sits along the Hudson River about 25 miles north of Manhattan. A 1999 "Sleepy Hollow" movie starred Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane.
