MTV Developing a 'Scream' TV Series

Do you like scary movies? How about scary teen TV dramas? According to TVLine, MTV's developing a weekly series based on Wes Craven's self-aware "Scream" horror franchise:

Former MTV execs Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, who are shepherding the project under their DiGa production shingle, are on the hunt for a writer to pen the pilot. It’s unclear what role, if any, Scream auteurs Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven will have in the potential series.

MTV's turned "Teen Wolf" (the second season of which premiered last night) into a successful scripted show, so a "Scream" series isn't that far-fetched, though how you can sustain an episodic property while presumably regularly killing off characters could prove a challenge.

The first "Scream" film came out in 1996. "Scream 4," which was released last year (with Craven once again serving as director), didn't fare as well at the box office as its predecessors.

    I heard Joshua Patrick Dudley, the writer of the Stab movies from StabMovies.com is going to be writing the Scream TV show! That would be so awesome! I love his movies and his writing style! His scripts are scary and so funny!
