Tonight at the MTV Movie Awards, the first trailer for the former-Music Television’s upcoming Scream tv series premiered in all its ghastly glory. A television adaptation of the venerable horror film franchise, it follows the aftermath of a cyber-bullying incident that leads to murder, connecting a group of teenagers to a past killing spree that may have inspired a copycat.
A collaboration between MTV and Dimension TV (The Weinstein Company) it’s executive-produced by Jill Blotevogel (Harper’s Island) and Jaime Paglia (Arrow) who also share showrunner duties, as well as Scream-creator Wes Craven, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad. John Shiban (Hell on Wheels) is along as consulting producer. The show premiers this June on MTV.
