Scream Still - H 2015

MTV has released the first eight minutes of its anticipated new show Scream.

Actress Bella Thorne, who has a cameo in the pilot, debuted the footage during a visit to NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers.

The series kicks off when entitled Lakewood High teen Nina is murdered in an apparent crime of passion. A young loner, Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus), is outed via cyberbullying and gets by with the help of nerdy friend Noah (John Karna) and a renewed relationship with Emma (Willa Fitzgerald), her former best friend from elementary school. Meanwhile, Emma's mother and the town's medical examiner, Maggie (Tracy Middendorf), work with Sheriff Clark (Jason Wiles) to solve the murder. Together, they must uncover if it is related to a killing spree committed by the previous generation's "bully victim," Brandon James.

The adaptation of the Dimension horror film debuts June 30 at 10 p.m. What do you think of the new footage? Sound off in the comments.
