MTV announced new projects in development, including a TV series version of 1980s movie “Teen Wolf.” Here’s the rundown from the release:
A reinvention of the classic ‘80s movie for today’s MTV audience, this show will draw from the horror genre to explore werewolf mythology, and include a sweeping romantic saga at the center.
“Teen Wolf” is written by Jeff Davis (creator and executive producer of “Criminal Minds”).
Let that one sink in for a second: “sweeping romantic saga.” Cut to the Hollywood brainstorming session six months ago: “So, okay. Teen Wolf. Everybody loves him. But he needs to appeal more to our audience.” “You’re saying it should be more like Twilight?” “Bingo.” **everyone farts in approval**
