MTV to Develop TV Series Based on SCREAM Franchise
Sources have confirmed to TVLine.com that MTV is currently developing a TV series based on the horror film franchise SCREAM. According to the report, the show will be a weekly series based on the four Scream films which all together grossed more than $500 million globally.
Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, former MTV executives, are behind the project under their DiGa Production Company. A search for a script writer is now underway. No details were released as to the role, if any, that Scream writer Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven will have in the upcoming series.
Scream was first released on 1996. The film was written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven and starred Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Drew Barrymore, and David Arquette. Scream followed the character of Sidney Prescott (Campbell), a high school student in the fictional town of Woodsboro, who becomes the target of a mysterious killer known as Ghostface.
