‘Scream’ Series Being Developed by MTV

The highly popular horror film franchise Scream is being developed as a series by MTV. Color me officially excited! No word yet on whether Kevin Williamson or Wes Craven will be involved in development. I’m so excited!! Scream is my favorite movie of all time.


“Ghostface is taking his reign of terror to the small screen.

MTV is developing a weekly series based on the Scream film franchise, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

Former MTV execs Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, who are shepherding the project under their DiGa production shingle, are on the hunt for a writer to pen the pilot.

It’s unclear what role, if any, Scream auteurs Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven will have in the potential series.

The four Scream flicks have brought in $500 million globally, although the most recent pic — last year’s Scream 4 — grossed a paltry $40 million domestically.

Reality-obsessed MTV has found success on the scripted side with hits Teen Wolf and Awkward.”

I’m personally so pumped. I could see myself getting obsessed with this show, especially if they get a fresh young cast like Teen Wolf or Skins. Something about this series just feels like it would fit the MTV mold. This could be a great pairing with Teen Wolf. I. CAN’T. WAIT. Thoughts?
