Guess what? We got a new potentialTV series heading our way this summer, and MTV is behind this one. It appears the channel, which is owned by Viacom Media Networks, has ordered a pilot episode of a series based on the Scream franchise.
That’s right! MTV and Dimension Films have been in talks since last summer about producing a Scream series, and it sounds like it’s official for this year. However, a full season hasn’t been determined yet, not until the one-hour pilot episode is aired on MTV and gets a successful rating.
Additionally, MTV is searching for a scribe to write the pilot, and Wes Craven is being considered to direct it.
So far the details are very limited, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated onwhen more are announced.
