“Scream the series” first look trailer! (MORE trailer bottom of article)
The latest news from “Scream” on the small screen is that one major difference between the series and the original movies has happened. MTV and the Weinstein Company I hear were not able to secure the rights to the original Ghostface mask. So the new “Scream” killer will not look exactly like his film counterpart. Also news from TVLine who had gotten a hold of character descriptions from the script. While in the original films and now with the series, the main characters are all teenagers. But unlike the movies, Scream the TV series indicates that the show might dive into the supernatural area. Check out the description below:
Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty “who’s a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly” but has nevertheless been anointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. “She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey,” but at least she’s got a ‘Gilmore Girls’-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.
Audrey Jesen: Haper’s former BFF is described as “the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor” who’s “more arresting-looking than pretty.” This “artsy loner” dreams of being a filmmaker and shares a close bond with tech genius Noah.
Noah Foster: Audrey’s closest confidante is “creative, brilliant and tech-savvy enough to be the next Steve Jobs.” Lucky for him, he’s got a great sense of humor (“a la John Cusack in his teen prime”) that helps him navigate the halls of his high school. What’s more, Noah possesses “an encyclopedic knowledge of books, films, TV, apps, etc.”
Margaret “Maggie” Duval: Harper’s mom, in her early to mid-40s, is the town’s medical examiner, “a grown-up science geek who plays down her beauty.” Maggie spends a lot of her time trying to make up for the fact that Harper’s dad abandoned them. Oh, and she’s harboring “a dark secret from her past.”
More Teaser Trailer for Scream TV series on MTV:
“Scream the series” is written by Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood, Harper’s Island, Eureka), the pilot starts with a YouTube video going viral, which soon leads to problems for teenager Audrey and seemingly serves as the “catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to [her] town’s troubled past.”
BloodyDisgusting reports that Wes Craven, who helmed all four of the Scream films, will direct the pilot this summer.
