The Scream TV series has a director and cast of new faces

08.05.2014

Since the announcement of MTV’s SCREAM series many have bene wondering about the tone of the show and if any characters from the movie would be represented on the show. SCREAM is one of my favorite movies and it has been hard to get excited for this considering the slate of garbage on MTV at the moment. Regardless, when news comes in about the series, I’m jumping on it, hoping to hear that the Ghostface legacy won’t be butchered.

MTV and Dimension TV have announced Jamie Travis will officially direct the pilot episode of the series. He’s responsible for the 2012 comedy FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL… and has directed episodes of something called MTV’s Faking It. Jay Beattie (Revenge) and Dan Dworkin (The Event) wrote the script, and judging by the insufferable character descriptions for the series, it probably didn’t take them that long.

Willa Fitzgerald (Royal Pains) as EMMA DUVAL (second from left) – a classic beauty whose looks and popularity hide a natural shyness and intellectual nature. Her new life with the “in crowd” leaves her estranged her from childhood best friend Audrey.

Amy Forsyth (Reign) as AUDREY JENSEN (first from left) – the daughter of a Lutheran pastor, Audrey is an artsy loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.

John Karna (The Neighbors) as NOAH FOSTER (first from right) – creative computer genius with a vast knowledge of pop culture and the tech world. Best friends with Audrey.

Carlson Young (The Kroll Show) as BROOKE MADDOX (middle) – charismatic leader of the popular crew whose personality vacillates between bubbly sweetness and ferocious sex appeal.

Amadeus Serafini as KIERAN WILCOX (second from right) – the mysterious new kid in town, Kieran’s got a dark side and a tough exterior that hints at experience beyond his years.

I know these are small and uncreative descriptions just to give a sense of character (I think), but man, I can tell I’m not going to like these kids. I will wait for an official synopsis before I pull the plug on this one.

Don't knock the Wolf

Disappointed Craven isn't involved like he was said to be originally. This has significantly lowered my anticipation. One thing though, Teen Wolf is a damn cool show, so that's one reason I'm still kinda hopeful. Don't knock the wolf, it's much better than one would expect and is damn funny at times. Still, this isn't looking too good right now.

If the tv series were made 10 yrs ago, maybe that would been something. Now, I think it's way too late.

Sounds horrible! Why does Hollywood have to try and drain every bit of goodness from every property they have? I mean Scream was a great movie, the sequels slowly got worse over time and nothing has really captured the creativity and appeal of the first movie. Why not let sleeping dogs lie and just let Scream exist as the great movie it is rather than saturating it with this dumb TV show?

'no ethnic people' ?
Only on this picture... You perfectly know there will be, because of the quotas in US TV... So please, stop the BS.

Come on now, who's really named Amadeus!?!?

Now, I love the "Scream" series, one of my favorite, but maaaan I just cannot get behind a MTV series. If you told me HBO, AMC, FX, or perhaps Showtime, I may be able to give it the benefit of the doubt.... I just cannot get my hopes up for a MTV show. Though my fifteen year old niece keeps telling me to give "Teen Wolf" a chance.....

Thank goodness YouTube still has music videos......

Could you imagine in 1996 telling moviegoers "guys, this fun, irreverent, original take-down of slasher movies is gonna become totally formulaic before you know it and by that time, there'll be a TV show out?"

Scream played on stereotypes so these seemingly generic character bios shouldn't come as a surprise. That being said, I'm still not very optimistic about anything MTV has to offer.

Well of course the goofy looking guy would be the computer genius. Who could have guessed that?
