Scream TV Series Coming to MTV


MTV greenlights the pilot for a TV series adaption of the successful horror/comedy franchise Scream to go into production.

The one-hour pilot will reinvent the franchise and it’s slate for a summer 2014 debut.  Dimension Film is also in discussion with the original creator and renowned filmmaker Wes Craven to direct the one-hour pilot.

It’s unknown that if the TV series will feature brand-new characters, or simply put the Ghostface killer in a new setting.  While it seems like MTV will like to stick to the franchise’s roots, it’s difficult to see how the film will play out long-term like a series.
