There seems to be a lot in interest these days in taking big movie franchises and adapting them for the small screen. We've recently learned that Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson's Scream will be adapted into a TV series by MTV. There's no word on whether Craven or Williamson will be involved, though it would be a shame if they weren't. After all, they're the guys who created it and made it a successful horror movie franchise.
According to TV Line, "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."
I've enjoyed all of the Scream films, and I though the last movie was great. It got me excited about the possibility of seeing more movies, but if a TV series is happening, what does that mean for the film franchise? We've heard there might be a fifth and sixth film, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
MTV has created other non-reality series, like Teen Wolf and Awkward, which are both shows that I don't watch. Hell, I never tune in to MTV for anything. What do you think about Scream heading to the small screen? I'm not sure how they plan to adapt it, or how it will translate to TV because the movies are kind of a parody of horror movies in general.
