Don't have sex! Don't do drugs! And for crying out loud, don't fumble with your car keys while running away from a crazy murderer!
A television series based on the Friday the 13th horror film franchise is in development from Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment, according to Deadline. Sean S. Cunningham, who directed the original 1980 horror film, is among the potential show's executive producers.
The hour-long horror-drama would once again bring hockey-mask-wearing slasher Jason Vorhees back into pop culture; the legendary movie murderer has terrorized audiences in a dozen films and inspired thousands of simple Halloween costumes for nearly three decades. Bill Basso (The Terminator) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) are writing the script, and the show will be set in the present day but re-imagine Jason across multiple time periods. The idea is to focus on Jason's former slaying grounds, Camp Crystal Lake, where the current residents are forced to deal with the killer's return "as new secrets about his wacky family are revealed."
No network is attached to the project.
