MTV’s ‘Scream’ Premiere Draws Modest Crowd Tuesday

10 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite built-in name recognition, MTV’s teen slasher drama “Scream” could scare up only Ok ratings in its premiere Tuesday night.

In Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates, “Scream” averaged a 0.45 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.03 million viewers overall in the 10 o’clock hour. It did do a good job retaining most of the viewers watching an original episode of “Teen Wolf” on MTV in the preceding hour (0.50 rating in 18-49, 1.18 million viewers overall).

Review: Scream

Not to be confused with Fox’s “Scream Queens,” bowing in September, “Scream” is based on the movie franchise of the same name from Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. It features a cast of mostly unknowns, and ratings expectations were certainly lower than that of the Fox program, which has generated some of the best buzz of any new series bowing on the major networks this fall.

In its premiere, “Scream” was Tuesday’s No. »

Why MTV's 'Scream: The TV Series' Spells Doom for TV's Revival Obsession

18 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"You can’t do a slasher movie as a TV series," Noah Foster (John Karna), the resident entertainment geek of MTV's "Scream: The TV Series," says during Tuesday night's premiere. "Survivor movies burn bright and fast. TV needs to stretch things out." As much a nod to the original films as a cheap thievery of their clever spirit, the above lines — bound to be oft-quoted by journalists looking for a quick intro — are obviously meant to be disproven by the new, 10-episode television series inspired by Wes Craven's late '90s horror satire. Instead, they serve as its tombstone, as well as an explanation for exactly what's wrong with networks' recent revival obsession.

Neve Campbell Joins 'House Of Cards' Season 4

Scream episode 1 review: Red Roses

20 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

MTV's Scream pilot ticks all the boxes without feeling rote or formulaic. It's a witty, twisty, thrill for fans of the original...

I never would have thought I would watch as much MTV as I do. Once upon a time, MTV was a must-watch for music videos, and maybe weird cartoons like Beavis And Butthead or Liquid Television. Other than that, I never really had a lot of engagement with MTV or its programming. Then Teen Wolf came along, and everything seemed to change for the former Music Television. Now they're producing some great TV, attracting great ratings in their demographic, and killing it on the teen horror front. Teen Wolf wasn't enough; now the network is reaching into its bag of nasty tricks and unleashing a television adaptation of Scream on the world.

Scream is something of a horror classic, just because it references so many genre classics. It's »

Scream of laughter: how today's best-loved pop culture grew from parody

MTV’s new Scream series serves as a reminder of how the likes of Scary Movie and Austin Powers shaped a generation’s taste in film and television

This week, almost 20 years after Wes Craven’s slasher masterpiece, MTV delivered its own version of Scream – a campy, suspenseful series of the same name that offers as much teenage melodrama as it does violence. This is great news, especially since it marks a return to the kind of movies that birthed the golden age of parody culture. And without parodies, we wouldn’t have the movies and television we love so much now. (Calm down and hear me out.)

Neve Campbell Joins House Of Cards

22 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since the Scream franchise bloodied its last blade, Neve Campbell has been seen most regularly on the smaller screen with turns in Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men and soon NBC’s Welcome To Sweden. As everyone knows, that’s no bad place to be as an actor these days, especially if you can leap onto a Netflix show like House Of Cards. Campbell is the latest name to be added to the roster for the show’s fourth season.The Hollywood Reporter has Campbell appearing in a regular role, although Netflix is keeping her character details firmly under wraps.While the critical consensus was that season three dipped slightly below the vaulted standards of the first two, you wouldn’t put it past Underwood to pull something truly Machiavellian out of the bag in the fourth. Kevin Spacey, of course, will return as a President with far more enemies than friends. »

Scream Series Premiere: Will You Give MTV's Whodunit Another Stab?

Terror was reborn — albeit with a slightly remodeled face — on Tuesday when MTV premiered Scream, a small-screen slasher inspired by Kevin Williamson’s classic horror movie franchise.

The big debut kicked off with “it” girl Nina Patterson — played by Bella Thorne, who’s already having a rough week after that whole heroin thing — being selected as the masked killer’s first victim. And while no one knows who offed Nina, her murder brings back fond memories of Brandon James, an unfortunate bro who terrorized the town »

‘Scream’ Co-Showrunner on the Tricks of Treating Auds to a Great Horror Show

30 June 2015 8:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fans of the “Scream” movie franchise are well aware that there are certain rules one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie. But what’s required to have a successful horror TV show? Jaime Paglia, one of the executive producers and showrunners of MTV’s “Scream” TV series, chatted with Variety about the tricks to adapting a horror movie to the small screen, why he is avoiding stunt casting (for now) and, perhaps most importantly, the reasoning for abandoning the films’ iconic Ghostface killer mask.

Spoilers: “Scream” premieres at 10 p.m. June 30 on MTV. Do not read this interview unless you have watched the first episode in the series.

The TV show has almost a “Friday the 13th” meets “Scream” vibe to it. What was the idea behind the plot?

‘Scream’ Showrunner Teases Potential Bella Thorne Return, Killer’s New Mask and Murder Spoilers

30 June 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

MTV raised eyebrows when it announced that it was adapting the classic “Scream” horror film franchise into a TV series. How do you stretch a slasher movie out over 10 episodes? (Or more, assuming the series gets renewed.) According to showrunner Jill Blotevogel, the secret is taking the successful elements from the Wes Craven film series and “genetically splicing” them into a structure better suited for television. Where a slasher movie runs on adrenaline from kill to kill, “Scream” the TV show will operate on a deeper central mystery and a healthy dose of teen drama. (It is MTV, after all. »

Neve Campbell Joins "House of Cards"

30 June 2015 7:08 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Former "Party of Five" and "Scream" star Neve Campbell has scored a series regular role on Netflix's White House drama "House of Cards" for the show's upcoming fourth season.

Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright return as power couple Frank and Claire Underwood who were heading for a potential break-up in the S3 finale.

The fourth season is expected to see Spacey's President head into an election. Whilst details of Campbell's role are under wraps, there's speculation the new season will introduce a new, younger couple to rival Frank and Claire.

Filming begins later this Summer in Baltimore for an early 2016 release on the streaming service.

Neve Campbell Joins House of Cards As A Series Regular

30 June 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sidney Prescott is going to Washington!  Neve Campbell has been cast in a series regular role on the Netflix drama House of Cards, reports Deadline.  Of course, Campbell has played many other roles since starring in all four films in the Scream franchise, but to us, Campbell will always be the girl who survived multiple masked knife-wielders.  There aren't any details about her role available yet, but perhaps she'll have to use some of those survival skills when going up against the Underwoods when the show returns for a fourth season next year.  Not much is known about that fourth season yet, but showrunner Beau Willimon promised that things are going to get »

Scream Showrunners Jill Blotevogel and Jaime Paglia Talk about the Killer Series

30 June 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The MTV series Scream, based on the hit horror franchise, follows what happens after a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder and the shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past. Now, a group of local teens will quickly become victims or suspects, as secrets are revealed that could tie some of them a little too closely a killer who’s out for blood. The show stars Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini, John Karna, Connor Weil, Tracy Middendorf and Jason Wiles. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, showrunners Jill Blotevogel and Jaime Paglia talked about finding an idea that could work for TV, keeping the viewers guessing about when the next person might die, having a long-term plan while keeping things flexible, their process for designing the new mask, whether they ever thought about bringing back any of the characters from the films, »

‘Scream’ Review: MTV Series Goes Straight For The Entertaining Jugular

30 June 2015 4:33 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Almost 20 years after the first witty and scary movie came out, Scream is back, this time on the small screen. Debuting on MTV tonight, Scream the TV series is, as my video review above says, a light but surprising shot of un-self-conscious summer entertainment. While updated from the 1990s with YouTube postings and smartphone stalkings, this Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein-executive produced series still distinctly has a bloodied foot or two in its origins. Yes, for… »

Watch: First 8 Minutes of MTV's 'Scream' Before Tonight's Premiere

30 June 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Will you be watching MTV's "Scream" premiere tonight at 10/9cc Or at all, for that matterc Writer Kevin Williamson doesn't seem involved in any capacity and Wes Craven is credited as an executive producer, even though it's unclear just how involved he is creatively, but the station is gung-ho about this being their next "Teen Wolf." I never watched that show, but I've heard it's easier to stomach than most things the former music channel produces today, but I don't think I can say the same for "Scream," especially after skimming the released first eight minutes. Much like Scream 4, little about this show feels authentic so far. As seen by this opening scene, "Scream" wants to bring the nearly 20-years-old original's wit and charisma to the digital age, sorta/kinda remaking Drew Barrymore's classic scene with Bella Thorne running around in a bikini messing with her phone and »

Scream Review: MTV’s Teen-Horror Series Strains To Be Hip, Compelling

30 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

About halfway through the pilot of MTV's Scream, adapted from the Wes Craven franchise of the same name, Noah (John Karna), a nerdy teen, goes meta and describes the challenges of adapting a slasher film for television. It's meant to be playful, but the entire discussion, in which Dario Argento and Horace Walpole are name-dropped, lands with a thud, bereft of the little details or sense of genuine fandom that added flavor to similar diatribes delivered by Jamie Kennedy's character in the first two Scream films. It would be one thing if the Scream series was attempting to subvert or comment on current horror trends - rampant self-seriousness, hectic and uncaring camerawork, lazy auditory scares, etc. -  but as the pilot brazenly admits, that's not what this show is about. [caption id="attachment_479785" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via MTV[/caption] Instead, as Noah once again opines, Scream is meant to be Friday Night Lights with a body count, »
