A series based on the “Friday the 13th” film series is in the works, according to Deadline.

Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have teamed to produce an hourlong drama series based on the characters and settings of the horror franchise. Sean S.Cunningham, director of the 1980 original, is executive producing.

Bill Basso and Jordue Schell’s scripts apparently transport Jason to multiple time periods.

The series is contemporary, focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his wacky family are revealed.

“Jason Voorhees is synonymous with the genre and we plan to build on this legacy with a provocative and compelling take that expands upon the storylines that have already thrilled millions worldwide,” explained Cunningham.

Said Barsamian: “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.”
