DESCRIPTION:
(from MTV's press release, April 2013) MTV announced today a pilot greenlight based on the hugely successful horror film franchise "Scream" with Dimension Films for MTV, plus the addition of three new series to its diverse programming slate, including "Generation Cryo," "Nurse Nation" and "The Hook Up," at its annual Upfront Presentation at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. In addition, the network announced the season three renewal of "Snooki & JWOWW" and highlighted an impressive programming slate of 15 returning hits. MTV is a division of Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB). MTV and Dimension Film's one-hour pilot will reinvent the successful horror comedy franchise that spawned three sequels and unleashed "Ghostface" to a legion of unsuspecting fans. MTV and Dimension Films are in discussions with various writers for the potential series which would be slated for a summer 2014 debut on the network. Dimension Films is in discussions with the films' original director and renowned filmmaker Wes Craven to direct the one-hour pilot. DiGa Vision will serve as a producer.
