Exclusive: MTV Developing Scream TV Series

Scream TV Show MTVGhostface is taking his reign of terror to the small screen.

MTV is developing a weekly series based on the Scream film franchise, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

Former MTV execs Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley, who are shepherding the project under their DiGa production shingle, are on the hunt for a writer to pen the pilot.

It’s unclear what role, if any, Scream auteurs Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven will have in the potential series.

The four Scream flicks have brought in $500 million globally, although the most recent pic — last year’s Scream 4 — grossed a paltry $40 million domestically.

Reality-obsessed MTV has found success on the scripted side with hits Teen Wolf and Awkward.

    I can see the opening scene being a awesome kill and it turning to high school kids watching Stab the series! Many of the kills would be from the stab series so we get to see Ghost Face in action without dwindling the main cast too quickly! By the end of the season your left with a handful or so of main characters that survived and continue with season 2 with new victims and a new killer or killers. I liked MTV’s My Super Psycho Sweet Sixteen Trilogy so I have high hopes for this!
