Friday the 13th Heading to Television

Friday the 13th

Deadline reports that Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have set a deal to produce a new hour-long dramatic series based upon the characters and settings of Friday the 13th. This is not a reboot of the original “Friday the 13th” television series. This will include Jason Voorhees.

The original film’s director Sean S. Cunningham will be executive producer along with Randall Emmett & George Furla, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM, Steve B. Harris of Diversion3 Entertainment, and Ted Fox of Fox Entertainment.

Bill Basso and Jordu Schell – both former creature designers in the industry – are penning the script, which re-imagines Jason Voorhees in “multiple time periods,” whatever that means. However, the series is contemporary, focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his family are revealed.
