With the first episode on the way to MTV next week, “Scream the TV Series” has just released its first eight minutes online. In the player below, you see how the new show begins with Bella Thorne (The DUFF, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) playing a role somewhat akin to Drew Barrymore’s in the 1996 original.
“Scream the TV Series” stars Bex Taylor-Klaus, Willa Fitzgerald, John Karna, Connor Weil and Amadeus Serafini. For a Good Time Call… helmer Jamie Travis directs the pilot. In it, after a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens – with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart – become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood.
The series won’t be using the iconic “Ghostface” mask from the big screen franchise, but the series’ replacement has already been revealed. Take a look at the killer’s new mask right here or in the gallery viewer below.
Look for “Scream the TV Series” to premiere June 30 on MTV at 10 PM ET/PT.
