Scream

Stage: Pilot script

How would it work? Little is known at the moment, but it could be a stabby case stretched across each season or possibly more of a horror anthology format.

What to say about it: MTV, which has had success turning Teen Wolf into teen drama, ordered former executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley to find the likely scribes who can make it work. There’s no word yet on whether writer Kevin Williamson (a telly veteran who's already running at least two shows across the pond) or director Wes Craven would be involved. And the show is already the subject of protests, with a petition on Facebook to get it stopped before it even starts. Ghostface might be looking at trouble.

Possible casting: Given how early the discussions are, it’s not really worth speculating. Though we’d throw in an idea that the show could recruit famous TV faces to be celebrity kills a la Drew Barrymore et al. Sliced Jon Hamm, anyone?

Possible tagline: “Do you like scary TV shows?”

4 Isn't S.H.I.E.L.D meant to be set in a totally diiferent "Universe" to the MCU?
Last I heard Kevin Fiege was adamant that the TV shows based on Marvel Characters (Hulk especially) would have absolutely no relation to the films. Basically the same way that Marvel comics and Ultimate Marvel comics take place in different realities. Have I missed him giving up on that? More

Was excited when About a Boy popped up but that sounds bad. It could do with a mini-series to flesh out the parts of the book that the film deviates from, but just to take the concept of man-befriends-boy? Why don't you just get rid of Alan Cryer and have One And a Half Men? More
