The CW is Developing a ‘Friday the 13th’ Television Series

CW, the network who is bringing us a post-apocalyptic adaptation of Little Women and a remake of the Notebook has now set their sights on the Friday the 13th franchise.

We suppose the premise has worked out pretty good so far for MTV and Scream.

According to Deadline, the series (described as a “sophisticated horror/crime thriller”) “re-imagines the masked Jason with a stronger feel of grounded reality.”

As for a plot, it will be centered around “the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Voorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake.”

Yup. Just like reality.
