At its upfront today, MTV is announcing a pilot order to a series adaptation of the hit horror film franchise Scream. At the event, held at the Beacon Theatre in New York, the cable network announced new unscripted series Generation Cryo, Nurse Nation as well as The Hook-Up, which Deadline wrote about yesterday. Additionally, Snooki & JWOWW has been renewed for a third season.

MTV is working on Scream with the films’ producer, the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films and former top MTV execs Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley’s DiGa Vision, which is behind MTV’s Teen Wolf and new reality series Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life. The project originally landed at MTV almost a year ago, brought in by previous MTV programming head David Janollari. The pilot green light is suprising, given the fact that there is no specific concept or a writer for the adaptation yet. The network recently met with a number of potential writers but didn’t settle on an idea. Still, MTV has big plans for the project, announcing that the potential series already has been slated for a summer 2014 debut. Dimension is in discussions with the films’ original director Wes Craven to direct the pilot.

In other MTV announcements, Nick Cannon’s re-imagined improv comedy show Nick Cannon Presents Wild N Out will premiere on MTV2 on July 9, and MTV2 is adding new series Guy Court to its slate. Here are descriptions of MTV’s newly picked up unscripted series: Read More »
