MTV Moving Along With Scream Series Production
MTV is moving along with its production for their upcoming "Scream" series.
The network has hired Jamie Travis to direct the pilot, and have a cast all lined up - Willa Fitzgerald ("Alpha House," "Royal Pains"), Amy Forsyth ("Torment," "Reign"), John Karna ("Premature," "The Neighbors"), Carlson Young ("Key and Peele," "The Kroll Show") and Amadeus Serafini.
Susanne Daniels, MTV's president of programming, said, "We are excited to be in business with the formidable Weinstein brothers. MTV is the perfect network to bring this consistently surprising film to life on television."
The series, of course, is based on the 1996 Wes Craven film, "Scream", which led to a franchise.
