More TV Terror From Kevin Williamson

Kevin Williamson sure can move fast when he wants to.

Only three weeks ago we discussed his TV deal with you and what it could mean for future Scream sequels – you know, the one that gave him sizable moolah and a degree of freedom to create more shows for CW, home of his Vampire Diaries. Now comes recent news of a new genre show from the scribe.

Vampire Diaries co-creator/ executive producer Kevin Williamson is working on a new supernatural drama project, envisioned as a potential companion for the CW’s flagship vampire drama. The untitled project, which is in early stages of development at Warner Bros. TV for the CW, focuses on a group of people who investigate paranormal happenings. I hear that that Williamson’s fellow Vampire Diaries co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec is in talks to come onboard and co-write the project with him. Since there is no deal with the network and no script yet, it is not clear if the paranormal drama would make it for this upcoming pilot season. (And no, the characters from the new show won’t find their way into an episode of Vampire Diaries.) This marks the first development project under the overall deal Williamson recently┬ásigned with Warner Bros. TV.

  1. Oh Kevin. When will he learn? The past is truly repeating itself.

    Kevin can’t finish a Scream movie because of a TV project…

    Kevin already has one successful TV show but is signing on to another…

    Kevin is in the process of wearing himself thin and will eventually abandon everything…

    Is it 1999 again???

    Kevin, you’re awesome, but learn from your past mistakes please.

  2. Robert,

    I’ve gotta stick up for Kev. The man had to call the Weinstein’s in tears telling them he couldn’t be involved in Scream 3. Why? Because he was working on two other projects for them– Wasteland and Tingle.

    Potentially, Tingle wouldn’t have been such a chore if they didn’t force heavy cuts in post-production. And Miramax/Dimension had just as much stake in Scream 3 as Kevin did. It’s not like Wasteland and Tingle were Warner Bros. projects or something. Why should they care if he’s free for Scream 3, right? But the Weinstein’s booked him and booked him and booked him. When they asked him to jump (Faculty, H20) he was there. Those were not projects that started with his idea/involvement. He joined late because he wanted to help the people who helped him. Other than the pay what help was Kevin given in return? They truncated his directorial debut, they completely threw out his notes for Scream 3 and heven stuck by them and churned out Venom during their “lame duck” years at the Disney Company.

    And Scream 4? We don’t even know what’s up with that one. Who’s to say Kevin left to focus on Vampire Diaries? Maybe they didn’t want his input any longer. Unfortunetly, we don’t know. But why come back for 5 and 6 if they ditched you on 4?

    He built Dimension Films. Unfortunetly they don’t always treat him like he did.

  3. I think its kinda of dumb for him to jump sail and just let scream pass by I bet it took him time and sleepless nights to write scream 4 for him not to be involved I hope he is anyways though but he should be able to stick to one thing and finish it

  4. I have to agree with Robert….he takes on too much and things start to suffer and fall apart.

  5. I don’t think there is much wrong with taking on plenty of projects. I would kill to be in his position one day. I mean wait for when there’s talk about who’s writing Scream 5 before we assume he is out of the series completely.
