While MTV is quite popular, it’s hard for me to think they’ll ever produce something that’s aimed at me. I h did get a taste of hope after their made-for-TV movie “My Super Psycho Sweet 16” impressed me, so maybe the “Teen Wolf” series will be watchable as well? Airing later this year, we caught up with Producer Jeff Davis who gave us the skinny on what we should expect. Get the quick rundown inside.
Davis told us the following at the San Diego Comic-Con:
“– KNB FX is handling the PRACTICAL effects!! The look of the werewolves (yes, I said “werewolves” plural) was very important so they brought in the best.
-The show’s pilot and initial episodes are being directed by Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction, The Highlander).
– There will be three types of werewolves in this show, all with a different look.
– Whenever they submitted material to MTV and thought it might be too edgy for them, they said “EDGIER!” so they are definitely pushing it!
– There’s no basketball team (aww), but they will be playing lacrosse! Excellent opportunity for a mid-field transformation … maybe …”
The reinvention of the 1985 movie starring Michael J. Fox has been a hot project at MTV, which ordered a pilot presentation in the summer. It revolves around Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), a dorky high-school student who gets a rush of new powers, including the ability to attract girls, after a wolf attack.
