Produced with Dimension Films, MTV is currently in search of writers for the one-hour project while Scream director Wes Craven is in discussions to direct the pilot. Should Scream receive a series order, it would be slated for a summer 2014 launch and would join current scripted offerings Teen Wolf (also adapted from a film franchise) and Awkward.
DiGa Vision will produce, with former MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley serving as executive producers.

But what do you think, Internet?
