The Sleepy Hollow pilots on NBC and CW are the latest example. Why not at least go for a historical setting? Because its a harder sell for the audience.
Also: Cheaper.
Movies are the worst. Even the good movies are dumbed down popcorn fodder, which is all Abrams Star Trek and The Avengers really are.
To the extent that's true it's only true of big blockbuster (usually Hollywood, Amercan) films. There's still plenty of movies being made every year that aren't really that.
