It was a retelling of Washington Irving's 1820 short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". It told the story the same way, but at the end, it is revealed that Brom actually made a deal with the Headless Horseman to take his place to get Ichabod out of the way. The production utilized motion capture and featured numerous celebrity voices.
