Despite already been greenlit, the pilot, which will produced by DiGa Vision in partnership with MTV and "Scream" movie studio Dimension Films, does not yet have a writer attached, though Craven is in talks with Dimension to potentially direct. How the "Scream" concept will be translated to television form is also not yet clear, though MTV vows to "reinvent the successful horror comedy franchise that spawned three sequels and unleashed 'Ghostface' to a legion of unsuspecting fans" and is aiming for a summer 2014 premiere. MTV currently has a genre hit in its darker and soapier adaptation of "Teen Wolf."
In more horror news, MTV has given a third season renewal to "Snooki & JWOWW." The network's also announced pickups for three new unscripted series: "Generation Cryo," about kids who were conceived with sperm donors; "Nurse Nation" (working title), about a group of travel nurses on 13-week assignments in a new city; and "The Hook Up" (working title), a dating show hosted by Andrew Schulz of "Guy Code."
