TVLine Items: Teen Wolf Boss Has the Right Stuff, Fresh Schitt's and More

Jeff Davis Let the Right One In

It seems werewolves and vampires can work together, after all.

Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis and actor Brandon Boyce (who portrayed Dr. Vandenburg on the MTV series) are teaming with A&E to adapt Swedish vampire flick Let the Right One In, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the book by John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let the Right One In centers on a bullied teen boy who befriends a female vampire just as a string of murders occurs in their town.

Davis and Boyce will executive-produce the drama alongside Marty Adelstein (Teen Wolf), Becky Clements (Last Man Standing) and Simon Oakes (The Woman in Black).

    A&E and actor Brandon Boyce should find someone else. Jeff Davis is an awful showrunner. He doesn’t have a show-bible for Teen Wolf (which explains so much about the lack of consistency on of the characters on the show) and his representation of LGBT characters is appalling.

    Does this mean that he will be stepping down as showrunner of Teen wolf? If so there might be some hope for the show (with a new showrunner). If not put us the viewers and the actors (who are 25 years old and still playing teenagers) out of our misery.

    Lifetime also announced the premiere dates for If There Be Thorns and Seeds of Yesterday with a trailer on YouTube

  5. J.B. says:

    Somebody is letting Jeff Davis make another show!? Sure he created Criminal Minds but CBS swiftly pushed him out of production during S1 but look how he’s ruined Teen Wolf! I hope this show doesn’t happen because just thinking about how he’ll bungle up the source material makes me want to toss my TV out the window.

  6. Oh Jesus says:

    What about no? Dora the Explorer would handle the show better.

  7. Jared says:

    I cant wait for Orphan Black to come back.

  8. Pleeeaaase give a clone to Felix! They’re gorg!
