MTV’s ‘Scream’ TV Series Scares Up Full Cast and Pilot Director
The underwhelming performance of ‘Scream 4′ has us admittedly curious to see MTV reinventing the Kevin Williamson horror franchise as a TV series, but will a starless ‘Scream‘ bring the same satire? Find out for yourself, as the official cast list and pilot director for MTV’s ‘Scream’ TV series is a veritable who’s who of people you’ve never heard of!
Where previously we’d heard that Wes Craven might potentially direct the premiere, MTV and Dimension today announced that ‘Faking It”s Jamie Travis will helm the pilot, with a script from Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin. Per MTV, here’s the full roster for the potential ‘Scream’ TV series, which for the moment has only a pilot order at the network:
Willa Fitzgerald as EMMA DUVAL: A classic beauty whose looks and popularity hide a natural shyness and intellectual nature. Her new life with the “in crowd” leaves her estranged her from childhood best friend Audrey.
Amy Forsyth as AUDREY JENSEN: The daughter of a Lutheran pastor, Audrey is an artsy loner who aspires to be a filmmaker.
John Karna as NOAH FOSTER: Creative computer genius with a vast knowledge of pop culture and the tech world. Best friends with Audrey.
Carlson Young as BROOKE MADDOX: Charismatic leader of the popular crew whose personality vacillates between bubbly sweetness and ferocious sex appeal.
Amadeus Serafini as KIERAN WILCOX: The mysterious new kid in town, Kieran’s got a dark side and a tough exterior that hints at experience beyond his years.
Previously, we’d heard that the pilot will focus on a viral YouTube video causing havoc for teenager Audrey and serving as the “catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.” Says Bob Weinstein of the news, “Scream has been one of our largest and most treasured franchises at Dimension and we are thrilled to embark on the next chapter and join forces with a network that we love.”
Well, alright then. MTV’s teen dramas have certainly managed to find a home, especially with the ever-increasing popularity of ‘Teen Wolf,’ but what do you think? Does the new ‘Scream’ cast have you interested in a TV adaptation in the near future?
