Will You Scream for a TV Series?

Chris Savage

So is this now the future of television, to make a TV based on almost every film? Who knows, but we do have word that a TV series based upon Wes Craven’s Scream is in the works, excited?

According to TV Line, MTV is developing a a weekly TV series based upon Wes Craven’s Scream franchise with┬áTony DiSanto and Liz Gateley shepherding the project under their DiGa production shingle.

Currently the producers are out to writers to pen the pilot, and there is no word if Wes Craven or Kevin Williamson will be involved, and I highly doubt it.

MTV seems like the perfect fit for the TV series of Scream, but one of my many questions are, where can they go? And will there be a Scream 5? I guess we shall have to wait and see.

        What would it be about? And how much of a glutton am I for totally wanting to watch?

        Unless Kevin Williamson is involved, fuck it.

        I have loathed MTV for many years now as sadly all they do is perpetuate
        the rewarding of bad behavior with their abundance of reality
        programming. I mean WTF where is the music hello? Anyway with that said,
        I was surprised at last year’s successful “Teen Wolf” series and
        whether or not it speaks to you is not really a factor as it opens up
        the door for more scripted shows. As for “Scream” going the way of “Teen
        Wolf”, who knows if it will work or not but I would tread lightly as
        who knows if the remaining films (parts 5 and 6) are still planning to
        be made. Should the tv series go off without a hitch and follow the same
        timeline as the original film series, then this will certainly alter
        the path of the future of the film franchise. I love Ghostface and I
        would be curious to see what they do with it on a 60 minute per week
        series, and with the team behind “Teen Wolf” running the show who knows,
        it might actually turn out well. We’ll see…
