The end is nigh for Sleepy Hollow's first season. And it looks extremely...busy. It's a stinging-cold December morning at Wilmington, North Carolina's EUE/Screen Gems Studios.

Tapping is exec-producing the TV port along with SG-1 writer-producer Damian Kindler and producer-director Martin Wood, and Sam Egan.Despite scoring this plum gig, Tapping will guest on at least several Stargate Atlantis episodes next season.Sanctuary will be the first TV series to shoot live-action actors against "virtual set pieces," à la 300 and Sin City.I've got Logan's Run now stuck in my head.
