The latest reports suggest that the new Friday the 13th series will focus on the "real" city of Crystal Lake & that The CW has expressed interest in the concept. Last year, news broke that Friday the 13th creator Sean S. Cunningham was executive producing the new series, entitled Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles. Cunningham was at the Monster Mania convention this past weekend, & according to Friday the 13th The Franchise fansite, he dropped some new details about what to expect from the series. The site reports that Cunningham has "confirmed interest from the CW in regards to pickup for the tv show." He reportedly said that the basic premise of the series will focus on the real city of Crystal Lake, looking at the effect that the serialized films had on the town. The serialized films would be based on the "real life" killings that took place at the camp, which allows the series to reimagine Jason in a more grounded reality. Reportedly, the hockey masked Jason & a more serious backwoods inspired killer will make appearances on the series. There has also been previous talk of showing Jason in multiple time periods with the use of flashbacks. The pilot script will be written by Bill Basso (Terminator) & Jordu Schell (Avatar), with Cunningham executive producing.
