Print this article The "Scream" franchise helped popularize the slasher movie once again in the mid-90s, and now the iconic killer from the horror movies is headed to the small screen. MTV is reportedly in the process of developing a weekly series based on the popular films, according to TVLine.
Although the series is in the works, there are very little details. The project is being headed by MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, but they have yet to employ the help of writers. Additionally, it is unclear whether Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson, who created the original film, will have a role in the show's production.
One thing's for sure, it's likely to be a popular series. The "Scream" franchise has spawned four films, which have brought in more than $500 million worldwide.
TV series based on popular movies have become increasingly common in recent years. Some have been short-lived, like the "Terminator" spin-off "Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles," while others have enjoyed a more lengthy stay such as "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."
Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Complete Second Season DVD$44.99
