MTV Announces ‘Scream’ Pilot, New Reality Series And ‘Snooki & JWoww’ Renewal
By NELLIE ANDREEVA

At its upfront today, MTV is announcing a pilot order to a series adaptation of the hit horror film franchise Scream. At the event, held at the Beacon Theatre in New York, the cable network announced new unscripted series Generation Cryo, Nurse Nation as well as The Hook Up, which Deadline wrote about yesterday. Additionally, Snooki & JWOWW has been renewed for a third season.

MTV is working on Scream with the films’ producer, the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films and Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley’s DiGaVision. The project originally landed at MTV almost a year ago, brought in by former MTV programming topper David Janollari. The pilot green light is suprising, given the fact that there is no specific concept or a writer for the adaptation yet. The network recently met with a number of potential writers but didn’t settle on an idea. Still, MTV has big plans for the project, announcing that the potential series already has been slated for a summer 2014 debut. Dimension is in discussions with the films’ original director Wes Craven to direct the pilot.
I was actually wondering about this a few days ago.

I would say this has a lot of potential.

I'd pitch it like this:

Quote:
It's a teen drama series. Throughout the United States there have been murders inspired by the new hit Stab TV series and films. People think that it's sickening that Stab continues due to it inspiring actual murders, but the producers are adamant that it is not responsible for the way people respond to it. The first season is about one such town. We follow the story of a teenage girl in suburbia, her story begins on the day Stab premieres on television. Some of her friends are excited for it, while other friends think it's the lamest thing they've ever heard of. "Come on, they've exhausted the movies so what? They're going to put it on television now in hopes of making a quick buck off a brand name? How lame is that?!" Well, that night somebody in the town dies and it's suspect? None other than ghost face. Someone amongst them, one of her friends is the killer. And one by one they will all die and in the end all will be known.

In this series no character is safe. In the first season, the main character is killed within the first six episodes out of a total of twelve episodes. Let me repeat, no one is safe. And each season we will see more and more of these ghost face killers and different suburban towns. To mix things up even further, the second season would have a male protagonist. It won't ever be the same kind of protagonist, it will keep switching up.

What is exactly causing this? Will be the series' through-line.

Get prepared for 'Scream,' the show where no one is safe, which makes fun of itself, is always thrilling with twists right around the corner, an endless mystery, and an interactive online cross-promotion further delving into the murders that are taking this world by storm. Prepare to get slaughtered like a pig. What is your favorite horror show?
And that's just after zero minutes of thinking, just free-writing. They can do a lot here.

I'll give this a watch if it gets pickup. Usually MTV shows are pretty crappy all except for Teen Wolf.

I'll be curious to see if they actually land Wes Craven for the director of the pilot. Granted, he wasn't the one responsible for so much of the series' voice, but it'd still be cool if they got him...

I like the idea of a murder mystery show. Hopefully they can make this work.

As I said in the horror thread in Misc Movies, how they can stretch this into a television series is difficult to see. Even the movies are a stretch at times and that's only one movie every few years.

Uh huh. Let me know when you cash one of those checks, because if I can get thousands of dollars for just ripping of The Following as a ******, 3 paragraph, Scream fan fiction on an internet message board, I might be in the wrong field.

Ghostface, meet your new tormentees.

MTV has begun the casting process for its one-hour drama pilot based the Scream film franchise, and we’ve got intel on four series-regular characters.

The pilot, penned by Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood, Harper’s Island, Eureka), kicks off with a YouTube video going viral, which will have adverse repercussions for teenager Audrey and seemingly serve as the “catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.”

The show’s main characters, whose ethnicities are still to be determined, will include:

* Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty “who’s a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly” but has nevertheless been annointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. “She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey,” but at least she’s got a Gilmore Girls-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.

* Audrey Jesen: Haper’s former BFF is described as “the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor” who’s “more arresting-looking than pretty.” This “artsy loner” dreams of being a filmmaker and shares a close bond with tech genius Noah.

* Noah Foster: Audrey’s closest confidante is “creative, brilliant and tech-savvy enough to be the next Steve Jobs.” Lucky for him, he’s got a great sense of humor (“a la John Cusack in his teen prime”) that helps him navigate the halls of his high school. What’s more, Noah possesses “an encyclopedic knowledge of books, films, TV, apps, etc.”

* Margaret “Maggie” Duval: Harper’s mom, in her early to mid-40s, is the town’s medical examiner, “a grown-up science geek who plays down her beauty.” Maggie spends a lot of her time trying to make up for the fact that Harper’s dad abandoned them. Oh, and she’s harboring “a dark secret from her past.”

Ghostface is a getting some fresh prey.
MTV’s one-hour drama pilot based on the Scream film franchise has tapped a quintet of pretty, young faces, TVLine has learned.

Willa Fitzgerald —who currently recurs as Emma on Royal Pains — will star as another Emma, a classic beauty whose popularity actually masks a natural shyness and intellectual nature. Her new life with the cool kids leaves her estranged from childhood best friend Audrey (played by Amy Forsyth, Reign), the daughter of a Lutheran pastor and an artsy loner/aspiring filmmaker.

Also joining the pilot are John Karna (The Neighbors) as creative computer genius and Audrey’s best friend Noah, Carlson Young (Key and Peele) as bubbly, sexy popular group leader Brooke, and newcomer Amadeus Serafini as the dark, mysterious way too obvious suspect new kid Kieran.
Sounds like a typical horror movie cast.

Less excited now considering I heard a few weeks back that there would be no Ghostface.

I figured they'd have to do something to justify turning this into a series unless Ghostface decided to kill the entire town off one by one and no one there was competent enough to figure it out.

What is Scream without Ghostface? All Scream has been is a horror satire of the slasher genre.
