Peacock is looking to grow their viewership and retention by jumping into already existing material with a built in fan-base. Crystal Lake is being brought to screen by Star Trek: Discovery co-creator Bryan Fuller, who has been developing a Friday the 13th project, originally as a feature film, since 2013. He will serve as writer, showrunner and executive producer. This new series is being helmed by A24.

It is worth noting that, Victor Miller, who wrote the original screenplay of the 1980 movie, Marc Toberoff, Miller’s copyright attorney, and Rob Barsamian, who produced the original movie, will executive produce.
