MTV is hoping to duplicate its Teen Wolf success - with Scream. The cabler has been in development on a Scream series for nearly a year; now it finally seems they are going forward with the pilot.
Based off the slasher movie series directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson, the film series reinvigorated the slasher genre. The network is currently looking for a writer for the pilot (yup, a year in development and the best they got was "Yeah, let's do it") but they are in discussion with Craven to direct the pilot.
If Scream goes to series, it would debut on the network in Summer 2014, likely paired up with Teen Wolf, which starts its third season on June 3rd.
