A Friday The 13th TV series is currently in development at the CW.

Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle, creators of the 1996 NBC series The Pretender, are writing the new series.

Deadline reports the new Friday the 13th series reimagines Jason with a stronger feel of grounded reality and is described as a sophisticated, horror/crime thriller.

The new Friday The 13th series is said to be about the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake.

Friday The 13th, created by Sean S. Cunningham, originated in 1980 spawning many sequels featuring the hockey-mask machete-wielding killer.
