Friday the 13th heading to television with hourlong series!

Obviously, it's not enough that Jason Voorhees is being rebooted for the big screen… he'll be terrorizing the small screen as well soon enough!

Deadline reports that Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have set a deal to produce a new hour-long dramatic series based upon the characters and settings of FRIDAY THE 13th. (And no, it's not a reboot of "Friday the 13th: The Series".)

The original film's director Sean S. Cunningham will be executive producer along with Randall Emmett & George Furla, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM, Steve B. Harris of Diversion3 Entertainment, and Ted Fox of Fox Entertainment.

Bill Basso and Jordu Schell - both former creature designers in the industry - are penning the script, which re-imagines Jason Voorhees in "multiple time periods," whatever that means. However, the series is contemporary, focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his family are revealed.

More on this as it comes in…
