Friday the 13th Series Coming To Television


Hot on the heels of last week’s announcement that the Friday the 13th remake had a director, Deadline is reporting more big news from Camp Crystal Lake.

Jason is heading to the small screen.  The report says that the new series “re-imagines Jason in multiple time periods”.   They go on to say  “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 wacky family are revealed.” 
I am curious on how the show will be contemporary while taking place in different time periods.

Original director, Sean Cunningham will be back as an executive producer and had the following to say about the new show:

“Jason Voorhees is synonymous with the genre and we plan to build on this legacy with a provocative and compelling take that expands upon the storylines that have already thrilled millions worldwide,”

Also producing is Horror Inc. president Robert Barsamian who added:

“Expect the show to take viewers in some exciting new directions that we’re confident will not only excite existing fans of Friday The 13th but also attract new audiences to the situations and characters that inhabit the small town of Crystal Lake.”

A new found footage movie and a tv show!  How do you feel about all the receing activity around this franchise?
