Jason Voorhees is packing up his machete and heading to television.
Though the new series will be set in present-day Crystal Lake — the setting of the original 1980 film — Bill Basso (Terminator) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) are crafting a storyline that will show Jason in several different time periods.
“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,” says Horror Inc. president Robert Barsamian, who will also produce.
The series, which is not yet attached to a network, will be produced by Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment. Sean S. Cunningham, who produced the original film, will executive-produce.
