Of the three Friday the 13th projects in development (the film, the TV series, and the computer game), the ones fans seemed least excited about was the TV series being produced by the CW. Well I have some good news for those fans. The series is dead. Kaput. Gonzo.
According to reports from today's TCA event, the CW has nixed the program, putting one more axe in Jason Voorhees. This doesn't mean that there won't be another series at some point in the future at a different network, but for now the franchise has pared down its focus to the feature film, which might be filming in the next 180 days with THE LAST WITCH HUNTER's Breck Eisner at the helm.
Here was a potential synopsis for the series:
Reimagined as a sophisticated, horror/crime thriller, Friday the 13th is about the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Voorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake. The masked Jason is being reimagined with a stronger feel of grounded reality.
