Fans of Friday the 13th have been waiting for another feature film entry in the franchise for quite some time now and Paramount is moving forward with a new movie, but it looks like we’ll be getting another look at Crystal Lake’s slasher-in-residence, Jason Voorhees, on the small screen.
According to Deadline, a deal has just been made between Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment to develop a television series of hour-long episodes centered on characters and settings from the Friday the 13th films. Fans of the 1980 original will be happy to learn that Sean S. Cunningham, who directed and co-wrote the original film, will be one of the TV show’s executive producers.
Here’s more information on who is involved and some early story details:
