You know, there’s a dirty joke somewhere in that headline, but in the interest of timeliness I’ll just report the news instead. Famed young adult horror author R.L. Stine is getting some more love on the small screen courtesy of MTV and Jason Blum.
According to Deadline the network has ordered an hour-long pilot for “Eye Candy” from top horror producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) and Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke.
“Eye Candy,” based on RL Stine’s novel, has been heating up at MTV for some time. The high-profile package lists Blum as an executive producer through his Blumhouse Prods. and Hardwicke as exec producer and director. Written/co-executive produced by Emmy Grinwis, “Eye Candy” centers on tech genius Lindy who, convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, begins to suspect that one of her mysterious suitors may be a deadly cyber stalker. When her friends at the elusive cyber-police uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to one of Lindy’s dates. Teaming up with this band of hackers, Lindy works to solve the murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.
