I never thought I’d see they day when Teen Wolf would be relevant again.  Looks like the 30-somethings still have a soft spot in their heart for the Michael J. Fox flick and have convinced their superiors at MTV to bring the movie to the small screen for a 13-episode run.

“We loved the conceit of the original film and knew the title had a great hook,” said Liz Gateley, MTV’s senior VP of series development. “The creative challenge was to take that title and reinvent it as a horror series for the MTV audience.”

Production for the series begins this summer, with the expectation that we’ll see it on the tube by the end of the year.

To be honest, the first film was fun in a “turn your mind off and wait for the boobies to appear” kind of way, but since the cable channel won’t be showing any skin, I wonder if the series will be a horror series, or if it is going to be a mix of comedy, horror, or drama? I’ll definitely give it a watch when the pilot arrives, but if the network wants to keep me, it better be really good.

    “The creative challenge was to take that title and reinvent it as a horror series for the MTV audience.”

    And that’s where they lost me.

    The original wasn’t a horror. It doesn’t need to be re-invented.

    This is just taking someone else’s concept and name and smacking it on your own idea as a way of selling it to viewers and, frankly, that tends to indicate that the underlying product isn’t very good. If it were, they could sell it on its own.
