At their upfront presentation in New York, MTV today announced that they had given the greenlight to a one-hour pilot based on the Scream feature film series, renewed hit series Snooki & JWOWW for a third season and ordered three new reality series: Generation Cryo, Nurse Nation and The Hook Up.

Based on the Scream feature film series, MTV’s hour-long pilot will reinvent the successful horror comedy franchise that spawned three sequels and unleashed “Ghostface” to a legion of unsuspecting fans. Dimension Films are producing with DiGa Vision.

Now, Bree’s on a mission to meet all of her half-brothers and sisters and lead them on a nationwide search to find their biological father.

Some of them have been doing this for years, while others are on their first tour. Cameras will be there every step of the way as they take on the unique challenges and intense pressures of working in the medical profession as they face life or death decisions every day.  But it’s not ‘all work and no play.’ On days off, they take advantage of all that their host city has to offer, meet new people and potential new loves while often trying to keep previous relationships and friendships alive. It’s the ultimate ‘work-hard/play-hard’ lifestyle.

The Hook Up will be hosted by Andrew Schulz of MTV2’s popular hit series “Guy Code abd is a dating show that will air as an afternoon strip on MTV.  Individuals looking for a match will choose from four potential suitors based on their social media history. With the help of their closest friends, the contestants will try to separate the
