TVLine Items: Killer Scream Promo, NBC's Wiz Casts Aunt Em and More

Scream MTV

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… MTV’s Scream.

The cabler has released a new promo for its upcoming horror series, in which the stars of Awkward, Faking It, Teen Wolf, Finding Carter, Ridiculousness and The Challenge attend a killer summer party. (See what we did there?)

Also making an appearance in the teaser, of course, are Scream cast members Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini, John Karna and Connor Weil.

Scream debuts Tuesday, June 30, at 10/9c. Watch the (rather bloody) promo below:

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

    Blame CBS for moving next year’s Grammys to Mondays just like what NBC did with prime time Emmy awards back in August of 2014. BTW, Price is Right should end in the near future if no one’s going to replace Drew Carey ’cause he’s still a poor man’s Bob Barker.

    So, I’m probably not going to watch the new Scream show – it’s just not really my thing – but I did like the preview. It was cute, in a dark sort of way.

    I am excited for the new season of OITNB!

  3. Wordsmith says:

    That Scream promo was a pretty epic feat of network synergy.
    I wonder if they actually shot it in one take, with all of their stars in the room at the same time, or if they used camera tricks a la Birdman…

    I don’t care what the popular opinion is about the idea of this “Scream” series, I can’t wait for it. I’m sure it will have its faults and will be toned down but horror is supposed to be fun. I’m going to enjoy it and hopefully it lasts longer than Mtvs “Eye Candy”.

  5. Chris says:

    Oh good grief, I clicked play and was like “Wow, this production value is pretty amazing for MTV” and it was a commercial for Insidious III. :D

    Here’s hoping Scream will be my new fun summer thriller.

    I think Samantha Marie Ware who played Jane on the last season of Glee would be great to play Dorthy

    Unless NBC drastically changes the script for The Wiz (Empire, anyone?), it’s going to tank worse than Peter Pan.
