SCANDAL's Darby Stanchfield to Star in Netflix's LOCKE & KEY
Darby Stanchfield will star as Nina Locke in Locke & Key, according to Deadline. The series is Netflix's adaptation of Joe Hill's comic, from Hill, Carlton Cuse and IDW Entertainment.
Locke & Key is a horror-fantasy series that revolves around siblings Kinsey, Tyler and Bode (Emilia Jones, Connor Jessup and Jackson Robert Scott) who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
After the traumatic home attack, Nina Locke moves her family across the country to Keyhouse for a fresh start - and also to solve the mystery surrounding her late husband Rendell's murder. She struggles with her new role as a single mom, as Rendell was always more the traditional parent type. She's much more comfortable as an artist and house renovator.
Hill created the Netflix series, with Cuse, Aron Eli Coleite and Meredith Averill developing the show. The new first episode is written by Hill and Coleite with Cuse and Averill serving as showrunners.
Stanchfield is best known for playing Abby Whelan on ABC's Scandal. Her recent film credits include Stargirl and Justine.
