MTV picking up ‘Teen Wolf’
Los Angeles: MTV is set to grant a series order to ‘Teen Wolf,’ a project based on the 1985 Michael J Fox film.
Tyler Posey (ABC Family`s ‘Lincoln Heights’) will star as a high school student who gets superpowers, including the ability to woo girls, after a wolf attack.
The move has the network betting that after a couple hit vampire shows (HBO`s ‘True Blood,’ The CW`s ‘Vampire Diaries’), and, naturally, ‘Twilight,’ supernatural TV fans might be primed for a more furry hero.
‘Teen Wolf’ joins another MTV project, a domestic version of the UK hit ‘Skins,’ that recently received a series order at the network.
