Friday the 13th’ TV Series
« on: April 25, 2014, 09:38:16 am »
This is just an FYI... I have zero interest in this. I gave up on slasher films long ago. They had their time and place with me... but no longer.

I can only imagine this came from seeing how well Bates Motel and Hannibal are doing on TV.

Breaking: ‘Friday the 13th’ TV Series Announced!

Quote
Crystal Lake is finally reopening on the small-screen.

While Platinum Dunes works out their remake for 2015, Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have set a deal to produce a new hourlong dramatic series based upon the characters and settings of Friday The 13th, Deadline reports.

Sean S. Cunningham, who helmed the 1980 original, will be executive producer along with EFO Films principals Randall Emmett & George Furla, Dan Farrands, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM, Steve B. Harris of Diversion3 Entertainment, and Ted Fox of Fox Entertainment. Also producing is Horror Inc. president Robert Barsamian, who produced the features. The series was conceived by Daniel Farrands & Geoff Garrett.

Bill Basso (Terminator) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) have been set to script “a storyline that re-imagines Jason in multiple time periods.”

The original was set at a summer camp, closed because of the drowning of an unattended child. Promiscuous counselors tried to re-open the place, but they began dying. Jason actually took root as the indestructible villain in the second film, with his signature hockey goalie mask debuting in the third. “The series is contemporary, focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his wacky family are revealed.”

Roy Knyrim (Gods and Monsters) of SOTA FX will coordinate the special make-up effects for the series.

“Jason Voorhees is synonymous with the genre and we plan to build on this legacy with a provocative and compelling take that expands upon the storylines that have already thrilled millions worldwide,” explained Cunningham. Said Barsamian: “Expect the show to take viewers in some exciting new directions that we’re confident will not only excite existing fans of Friday The 13th but also attract new audiences to the situations and characters that inhabit the small town of Crystal Lake.”

Not a fan of slashers in general, but didn't they already do a Friday the 13th Series on Spike TV or USA a few years ago? Whether they did or not, I doubt I will even bother checking this out. Bates Motel and Hannibal, based on their rich character back-story automatically dwarfs anything Friday is going to put out.
