‘Scandal’ Actress Darby Stanchfield to Star in ‘Locke and Key’ for Netflix
Scandal” alum Darby Stanchfield has signed on to star in Netflix’s upcoming horror/fantasy series “Locke and Key,” TheWrap has learned.

“Locke and Key” follows the Locke family — Nina (Stanchfield) and her three children — who move across the country to Nina’s family home (called the Keyhouse) after Nina’s husband Rendell is murdered. Once there, they discover that the house hides numerous horrifying supernatural secrets — and answers to the mystery of Rendell’s murder.

With the promise secured, Lonnie then shot himself, setting the characters off on a whirlwind of testimonies and a high-stakes chase against Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) and Cyrus Bean
