Sean S. Cunningham Provides Details On Friday the 13th TV Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.16.2014



In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Sean S. Cunningham, the director of the 1980 film Friday the 13th and executive producer of the new TV series, revealed some details on Jason Voorhees' television debut. Cunningham executive produces with EFO Films' Randall Emmett & George Furla, Mark Canton of Atmosphere Entertainment MM, Steve B. Harris of Diversion3 Entertainment, and Ted Fox of Fox Entertainment. Here are highlights:

On if it will focus on Jason's relationship with his mother: "It's premature to say how the stories will involve the Pamela/Jason relationship but we have some very exciting ideas of what we'd like the show to be and some new themes we're going to include. But that's all hush hush at the moment. I can say the show does take place in Crystal Lake and Jason will most certainly let his presence be known."

On what kind of Jason will appear: "Jason Voorhees will be an integral part of the series and he will definitely be ‘in character [laughs]. As we wrestle with the passage of time a new issue became how did Jason age? Did he age at all or is he the same as he was back in the day? Fortunately our special effects team led by Bill Basso, Jordu Schell and Roy Knyrim are on the case. Their work is amazing and the end result is both disturbing and fitting with the story we're hoping to tell. We will be releasing more information around Comic-Con."

On how gory the series will be: "Pushing the envelope has been part of the Friday the 13th legacy, and I don't expect that to change. It's a great time for us… We're at a place where we can actually do a eries which satisfies fan expectations and, more importantly, will allow us to tell stories which can attract an even wider audience. The filters on violence and sex and language which used to exist in network television are quickly disappearing. There is a tremendous appetite for well-told stories, regardless of how horrifying the themes may be. Hannibal, American Horror Story, Fargo, True Detective, True Blood, Walking Dead… the list goes on and on. These are series which could not have been done well even ten years ago."
