CW Making A ‘Friday The 13th’ Series

Described as a sophisticated, horror/crime thriller, the potential 'Friday The 13th' series is about the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees

It looks like the stalker slasher serial killing Jason Voorhees is to slice and dice his way onto the small screen thanks to a television series from CW.

Head of CW Mark Pedowitz today confirmed reports that the channel was doing a ‘Friday The 13th’ series, which will be written by Steve Mitchell & Craig Van Sickle, creators of the 1996 NBC series ‘The Pretender’.

The series is reportedly going to be a more realistic take on the story in which Jason murdered a group of teenage kids at Crystal Lake.

Described as a sophisticated, horror/crime thriller, the potential ‘Friday The 13th’ series is about the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake.

In addition to ‘Friday The 13th,’ the CW is developing a series based on movies ‘The Notebook’, ‘Little Women’ and ‘Frequency,’ as well as an adaptation of ‘Archie Comics’ Riverdale. “I’m a big believer in titles and franchises,” Pedowitz said at TCA today.  “It makes them break out of the pack in some ways.”

Friday the 13th was packaged by Gersh.
