MTV Orders Scream Pilot, Renews Snooki & JWoww

at . Comments

MTV has ordered a one-hour drama pilot based on the movie Scream.

The project, which has been in development for over a year, is still seeking a writer, but will be produced by MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley. It it set to air in the summer of 2014.

The network, of course, has found major success with Teen Wolf, another series inspired by a film, which kicks off its third season in June.

Pfft.....this would of been cool in 1996.


Hmmm...I think I would be interested in the Scream depending on who is connected to it. Most of the reason Teen Wolf is in good hands is because clearly Jeff Davis is a pupil of the Joss Whedon school where he honed his teeth in writing for procedurals. Scream, well, I guess spoiler alert, is basically a serial killer story and you might worry that is being a little overdone right now. I know it would be more female based and from a safe person's point of view (clearly Sydney wasn't going to be on his high on his list until she got too close). Even as a drama, it would basically be Friday the 13th. I actually guess if it keeps the same vibe as basically a satire with our main protaganists thinking they know everything about what is happening because they are experts on the whole world of serial killers.
