'Scream' pilot picked up at MTV: Wes Craven may direct
"Scream" would serve as a potential companion to the network's successful "Teen Wolf" series, also based on a film series. According to reports, Craven is in talks to potentially direct the pilot. Craven hasn't directed a television episode since 1992, and he garnered acclaim as the director of several "Twilight Zone" episodes in the mid-1980s.
Williamson, on the other hand, is not involved with the TV show -- he's a little busy with his new serial killers over on FOX's "The Following," which ends with a finale this Monday night.
Should MTV's "Scream" pilot go to series, it would likely debut in Summer 2014.
