For fans of the horror classic, you’ll get to relive the gore and blood on a weekly basis, as Friday the 13th will be moving to an unknown as-of-yet network. Though it’s a TV show, and the series has been rebooted to varying degrees of success, the new effort will still maintain some of the DNA of the original, well-regarded iteration.
The director of the 1980 original will be the executive producer, and the premise supposedly will have Jason in different eras, chopping people up and whatnot, which means he’ll either be a time-traveler (totally lame) or it will be an anthology (less totally lame).
The president of Horror, Inc. Robert Barsamian, another producer, offered up this gibberish non-information about the project:
“Expect the show to take viewers in some exciting new directions that we’re confident will not only excite existing fans of Friday The 13th but also attract new audiences to the situations and characters that inhabit the small town of Crystal Lake.”
He used “excite” twice in the same sentence.
