While it's certainly safe to say that MTV probably doesn't know what the hell they're doing in regard to scripted television, one could argue that there are people involved with the project who do. The executive producers worked on Prison Break, The 4400 and Deep Space Nine, which is something, even though the head writer has only written Criminal Minds, which is terrible. But that doesn't matter that much! What I'm saying is they brought in some outside people who have done this before, rather than just being like, "Hey, you! Guy in charge of Bully Beatdown! Write this werewolf basketball show!" So it could be worse.
Plus, werewolves are totally the new vampires -- even Twilight says so. So at least there's some sort of a zeitgeist-y hook I can understand. And the subject matter lends itself to drama. I'd be a drama queen if I turned into a wolf in the middle of my basketball game and the whole school saw. So would you. So would anybody. It would be so upsetting and embarrassing, and it would not at all make you a popular jock like it did in the movie! A series could rectify this.
So yeah, I'm going to watch and probably love this show when it happens, even though it will have a nightmare soundtrack of Asher Roth and 3Oh!3 and other music I'm too damn old to understand, and Audrina will probably make a cameo. It's MTV's world, I'm just lovin' werewolves in it, after all.
But seriously, how awesome would it be if they did it mockumentary style and just called it, True Life: I Hate My Lycanthropy? It would be bring so much awareness to the issue! Audrina could set up a foundation!
