Dealine.com is reporting, as of just a few hours ago, that Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have reached a deal to bring an hourlong drama of the popular Friday the 13th series adapted for the small screen!

Sean Cunningham, director of the original Friday the 13th had this to say about the new series in development:

“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.”
