First character descriptions for MTV's Scream series revealed

04.03.2014by: Kevin Woods

We've known for a while that MTV was planning on bringing us a new series based on the SCREAM film franchise, and yesterday brought us the first plot details for the proposed TV slasher that is set to begin shooting this summer with SCREAM creator Wes Craven rumored to be taking the helm on the pilot. Now TVLine has dropped the intel on the first four series-regular characters.

As we learned yesterday, 'The “rules” of slasher movies is at the center of this new series, as it has been for the franchise. The pilot explores a YouTube video that has gone viral and causes problems for the protagonist, Audrey, who is caught in the middle of murder and the town’s troubled past.' The show’s main characters, whose ethnicities are still to be determined, will include:

Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty “who’s a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly” but has nevertheless been annointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. “She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey,” but at least she’s got a Gilmore Girls-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.

Audrey Jesen: Harper’s former BFF is described as “the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor” who’s “more arresting-looking than pretty.” This “artsy loner” dreams of being a filmmaker and shares a close bond with tech genius Noah.

Noah Foster: Audrey’s closest confidante is “creative, brilliant and tech-savvy enough to be the next Steve Jobs.” Lucky for him, he’s got a great sense of humor (“a la John Cusack in his teen prime”) that helps him navigate the halls of his high school. What’s more, Noah possesses “an encyclopedic knowledge of books, films, TV, apps, etc.”

Margaret “Maggie” Duval: Harper’s mom, in her early to mid-40s, is the town’s medical examiner, “a grown-up science geek who plays down her beauty.” Maggie spends a lot of her time trying to make up for the fact that Harper’s dad abandoned them. Oh, and she’s harboring “a dark secret from her past.”

Casting should be underway soon with Wes Craven directing the pilot this summer from a screenplay by Jill Blotevogel.

No word on whether or not they will still be going in the reported 'supernatural direction' for the new series. Let's hope not.

Every single one of those descriptions just sounds awful, and is the exact reason why so many shows on MTV or the CW suck balls...
