SCREAM TV Series Gets Pilot

Long rumoured adaptation gets greenlight.

MTV has announced that it is moving forward with a pilot for a TV-series adaptation of Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson’s popular horror-comedy franchise ‘Scream.’

The one-hour pilot is said to be a reinvention of the successful franchise that spawned three sequels and unleashed “Ghostface” to a legion of unsuspecting fans. MTV, and co-producers Dimension Films, are in discussions with various writers for the potential series which would be slated for a summer 2014 debut on the network.

Horror maestro Wes Craven, who directed the original films, is in talks to direct the pilot. Former MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley are producing via their DiGa Vision banner.
