MTV is getting ready to blast viewers with a brand-new "Scream." The network says it will produce a pilot for a TV-series adaptation of the popular slasher films.
The series would reinvent the horror-comedy franchise that began with the original release in 1996 and spawned three sequels. The most recent installation was released in 2011.
MTV said the films' original director, Wes Craven, is in discussions to direct the one-hour pilot. The "Scream" series is planned to debut in summer 2014.
