On Wednesday, April 2 TVLine posted the casting details for the upcoming "Scream" television series which will be airing on MTV. The casting call features the four main characters on the series, who will be tortured psychically, mentally and psychologically by Ghostface each week. The on hour series is expected to be picked up after the pilot episode is filmed later this year.
- Harper Duval: A 16-year-old beauty “who’s a little too introverted and intellectual to be a social butterfly” but has nevertheless been annointed by the popular crowd to be one of their own. “She feels guilty that she has drifted away from former best friend Audrey,” but at least she’s got a Gilmore Girls-esque relationship with mom Maggie to keep her sane.
- Audrey Jesen: Haper’s former BFF is described as “the bi-curious daughter of a Lutheran pastor” who’s “more arresting-looking than pretty.” This “artsy loner” dreams of being a filmmaker and shares a close bond with tech genius Noah.
- Noah Foster: Audrey’s closest confidante is “creative, brilliant and tech-savvy enough to be the next Steve Jobs.” Lucky for him, he’s got a great sense of humor (“a la John Cusack in his teen prime”) that helps him navigate the halls of his high school. What’s more, Noah possesses “an encyclopedic knowledge of books, films, TV, apps, etc.”
- Margaret “Maggie” Duval: Harper’s mom, in her early to mid-40s, is the town’s medical examiner, “a grown-up science geek who plays down her beauty.” Maggie spends a lot of her time trying to make up for the fact that Harper’s dad abandoned them. Oh, and she’s harboring “a dark secret from her past.”
The pilot was written by Jill Blotevogel, who recently penned episodes for the now canceled series "Ravenswood" and "Eureka." The episode will focus on a viral video posted to YouTube which will shed light on a murder that will bring the town's troubled past into the spotlight. The video will be connected to Audrey, which will serve as the controversial friend role in the horror film formula.
