The CW is interested in a ‘Friday The 13th’ TV show.

The CW network is interested in creating a Friday The 13th TV series, which has been in development for nearly a year. According to the Friday The 13th: Franchise website, the creator revealed some interesting details:

Sean Cunningham confirmed interest from the CW in regards to pickup for the tv show. According to him, the basic premise focuses on the REAL city of Crystal Lake, and the effect that the serialized films had on its real life counterpart. This allows them to reimagine Jason in a more grounded reality, as the films would be based off the real life killings that tool place at the Camp. (ie, both the Hockey Masked Jason and a more serious backwoods inspired killer will be making appearances throughout).

This sounds like a more realistic story behind the unstoppable serial killer and it’s entirely different from Friday the 13th: The Series, which had nothing to do with the movies and aired for three seasons in the 1980s.
