Its time to SCREAM with MTV, they announced their new shows as the 2013 MTV Upfronts
MTV use to be known for its dedication to everything pop culture and a slew of reality shows including fan favorites: MADE, and True Story. The iconic cable channel seems to be struggling to find it identity when the market is over populated with pop culture websites, webisodes and television shows. Nevertheless MTV expanded into MTV2 and has undergone multiple attempts at scripted television which landed them the monster hit Teen Wolf. There will be at least 5 new original series on the iconic network before 2014. In a rare move MTV has already green lighted a pilot for a tv show based off the Scream Movie franchise, without a script or a concept for the show. Officials inside MTV have stated that Scream will hopefully air by summer 2014. I guess we shall see.
MTV and Dimension Film’s one-hour pilot will reinvent the successful horror comedy franchise that spawned three sequels and unleashed “Ghostface” to a legion of unsuspecting fans. MTV and Dimension Films are in discussions with various writers for the potential series which would be slated for a summer 2014 debut on the network. Dimension Films is in discussions with the films’ original director and renowned filmmaker Wes Craven to direct the one-hour pilot. DiGa Vision will serve as a producer.
