What’s a Friday the 13th without Jason, a Nightmare on Elm Street without Freddy, or a Scream without Ghostface? Well, we have no idea about the first two, but we’re about to find out about the last one.
Last month, word got around that MTV’s Scream TV series would not involve the iconic Ghostface mask. Instead, we’ve now learned, it’ll debut a more “organic” new mask. Meaning it’ll possibly be made of flesh. Ew. More details on the Scream TV series mask after the jump.

For the past couple of years, MTV has been developing a Scream TV series based on the film franchise by Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. As of this summer, they had a director and cast in place. But now we’re getting some head-scratching info about the very premise of the show.
According to RJ Torbert of FunWorld, which holds the rights to the Ghostface “look,” Ghostface is not involved in the new Scream TV series. Which is kind of like having a Child’s Play movie without Chucky. Hit the jump to read Torbert’s comments.

A year has passed since MTV greenlit a pilot based on the Wes Craven horror franchise Scream. Finally, casting has begun. We know because descriptions of the Scream TV show’s four main characters have now been revealed. While they don’t shine any particular light on how the series will tie into the films, they do give an idea of the dynamics of the show. They’re very MTV.
However, one other piece of new information does offer a significant hint at how the Scream TV show will tie into the films. Read about it all below. Read More »
Briefly: MTV’s Scream TV series is moving forward. The network announced the show at their upfront this past Spring and Friday, at the Television Critics Association event, they revealed Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin would be writing the show. Beattie and Dworkin worked together on Criminal Minds, Revenge and The Event.
There’s still no word on how, or if, the show will tie into the movies or when we might see a pilot. Either way, the show is aiming to “reinvent” the franchise. [Variety]

At first blush, a star-studded comedy about the apocalypse and a reality show about hot-tubbing 20somethings wouldn’t seem to have much in common. Upon closer examination, however, it turns out they’re not very different at all.
Both MTV’s The Real World and Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel‘s This Is the End involve unruly groups stuck living together — the former because that’s what they have to do to get on TV, the latter because the rest of the world has become a fiery pit of despair. Both show housemates forging alliances and nursing grudges. Both see said relationships fueled by copious amounts of inhibition-lowering substances.
But most importantly, both the premiere of This Is the End and the finale of Real World: Portland hit this week. As a result, members of both casts have teamed for a clever bit of cross-promotion titled The Real World: This Is the End edition. Check it out after the jump.
