Wie is er niet bekend met de de lang lopende Friday the 13th franchise, de horror serie met moordlustige Jason Voorhees en zijn hockey masker. Nu werkt de TV zender CW (Arrow, The Flash) aan een TV serie die gebaseerd is op de bekende films en niet zoals in de jaren 80 een anthology waarbij elke aflevering een ander verhaal had. Vandaag werden er meer details bekend en daar over kan je hier meer lezen.

The CW is moving forward on the series with a new pair of writers and a different take on the IP. Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle, creators of the 1996 NBC series The Pretender, will develop the fledgling horror series for the network, reimagining Friday the 13th as a sophisticated horror/crime thriller “with a stronger feel of grounded reality”. The series will follow a detective's ongoing search for his missing brother in a case that is tied to Voorhees. Long presumed dead, the masked mass murderer returns again to wreak havoc on Crystal Lake anew.

During his executive session at today's portion of the TCA press tour, CW president Mark Pedowitz spoke about the network's skill for crafting “high-concept genre” series. He also described himself as “a big believer in titles and franchises,” saying the brand recognition “makes them break out of the pack in some ways.” Friday the 13th certainly fits the bill, and the recent success of MTV's Scream reboot certainly couldn't have hurt the decision to pick up the horror series
