ULTIMATE TV TRIVIA: All Trivia Every Fan Should Know About ... SLEEPY HOLLOW

Ichabod Crane awakes from the throes of death 250 years in the future where he must solve a mystery dating back to the founding fathers. Due to a blood spell cast on a battlefield during the Revolution, the infamous headless horseman is revived along with Crane, and the murderous rider embarks on a … More bloody rampage in present-day Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod realizes that he must act quickly, for the headless horseman is only the first of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Detective Abbie Mills, a woman familiar with supernatural experiences, forms a bond with Crane as they try to stop an increasingly vicious cycle of evil.

The Headless Horseman is depicted as wearing the traditional "redcoat" uniform of the British Army. However, the Hessian mercenaries employed by Great Britain wore their own distinct uniforms. The most common were a green coat with red trim, or a blue jacket with gold trim.
The character Frank Irving's last name is an homage to Washington Irving, the author of the original story of Sleepy Hollow.
Most of the spells are spoken in Greek(not with a very good translation though)  
Matt Barr also appeared in Harpers' Island in which the female lead character was also named Abbie Mills.
External shots are filmed in New Bern, NC. Police station is county courthouse and mansion is Tryon Palace.

Appropriately enough, FOX aired the preview at midnight.
Music: Sympathy For The Devil (The Rolling Stones)
Filming Location: The pilot episode is filmed in Salisbury, NC.
Injoke: Captain Irving is named after Washington Irving, the author of the story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
The premiere episode brought in 10 million viewers.
Filming for the pilot began in March 2013.
Phillip Iscove was the one who came up with the concept of a "modern day Sleepy Hollow."
Injoke: One of Clancy Brown's (Sheriff Corbin) earlier movies was Highlander (1986), which involved decapitation. Brown's character, The Kurgan, is decapitated at the end of the movie.
The polygrapher does not follow any recognizable polygraph test. Such tests consist of asking the subject a series of yes and no questions, preceded by some baseline questions. The polygrapher lets Ichabod ramble on, which would make it impossible to get any usable readings.
When Andy Brooks is revived in the morgue it is said to him in Greek "Ο θάνατός ήταν μόνο η αρχή σκλάβος, η ψυχή σου είναι δικό μου" when what should have been said is "Ο θάνατός ήταν μόνο η αρχή σκλάβε, η ψυχή σου είναι δική μου". Incidentally Google Translate does the exact same error when translating from English to Greek. The meaning of the phrase is "Death was only the beginning slave, your soul is mine". Also what the demon said afterwards was incorrect. "Απελευθέρωσε την" (apeleftherose tin) should be the correct sentence and instead it was "apletherisetis".
Ichabod says that the bill is $4.95 plus an additional 41 cents tax. A minute later he says that it's a 10% tax. Ten percent of $4.95 is 49 cents, not 41 cents.
The plant that Crane touches as they search for the lost colony is Mimosa pudica, a plant that is truly sensitive to touch, as the leaves close up when something or someone comes in contact with them. But the leaves don't close up for days, only for some hours.
Despite Abbie's assertation to Crane that "That's the first time you ever called me Abbie", he did in fact call her Abbie in the pilot episode, when he told her, "But perhaps you were called to something, Abbie, to finish the work your sheriff started."
The end credits misspell Tarrytown as "Terrytown" in "Terrytown Psych Nurse."
When Jenny enters the cell where the Wendigo is being held chained, she is not wearing a glove on her right hand. But when she puts the organ box on the floor, she is wearing one.
When Ichabod and Abbie find Joe after the first two murders, he's unconscious but wearing a shirt. Every other time he transforms, the shapechanging destroys his clothing and he's naked afterward.
