MTV's 'Teen Wolf' Trailer

A new teaser trailer has been leaked for the upcoming MTV series Teen Wolf. Remember the days when MTV only aired music videos??

Based on the popular movie of the same name starring Michael J. Fox, the new Teen Wolf series definitely varies from its roots. For starters, in the original version the curse of the wolf is passed down from father to son, whereas this series uses a typical werewolf bite to spark the transformation. The drama will follow the life of Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), a lacross playing teenager with a crush on a girl whose father is bent on killing his werewolf counterpart. Hmm, seems like this is yet another attempt to exploit the vampire trend - only this time from the perspective of the wolves. Not exactly sure what kind of response this will get overall, but it seems like my kind of TV.

Teen Wolf is scheduled to begin production this summer for 12 one-hour episodes.
