CW In Works To Bring "Friday The 13th" To TV!

CW President Mark Pedowitz confirms Steve Mitchell & Craig Van Sickle (creators of “The Pretender”) tasked with creating a television series adapted from the “Friday the 13th” franchise. The series will be a re-imagining of the hockey masked, killing machine Jason Voorhees with a stronger grounding in reality. Described as an elevated crime horror thriller, the new series will  the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Voorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake.

There is gonna be a lot of noise about this one for sure, There was a lot of noise against 'Scream' the series, I for one stayed optimistic, and even though it isn't the same Scream that Wes Craven gave us a lot of his vision and concepts have found their way into the MTV adaptation. I have been enjoying the hell out of it. As for "Friday The 13th" series is concerned, if CW can pass with the level of violence and subject matter that MTV gets by with, or glory to the gods, stations like FX then I think the series will do good if given the chance. And if they have at least two Jason killings an episode, and at least one scene with the lake or campgrounds every two episodes. Make those things paramount and "Friday The 13th" the series will be awesome!
