A popular series of horror movies is being reworked as a television series. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that MTV has given a 10-episode order to a reboot of the Wes Craven film franchise “Scream.”
The series will debut in October 2015 and will star Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Connor Weil, Amadeus Serafini, Carlson Young, and Tracy Middendorf, with Joel Gretsch as the sheriff. The series will introduce new teens, but it’s not clear what kind of murderer or danger they’ll be facing, the piece notes.
Craven, the movie franchise’s director, will be an executive producer, as will Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, Cathy Konrad and showrunner Jill Blotevogel, the piece notes.
The original film franchise produced four movies from 1996 to 2011.
