Last night, MTV rang all the bells and blew all the whistles it could to promote the premiere of its new series, Teen Wolf, a dark re-imagining of the Michael J. Fox 1985 cult-movie of the same name.
The network premiered the new horror show at 11 p.m. last night, following the annual MTV Movie Awards to ensure that the new series had as many eyeballs on it as possible.
In the new series, part Mexican actor Tyler Posey plays Scott McCall, a high school student whose life is turned upside down when he’s mysteriously attacked by a wolf in the middle of the night. Days later he finds that the wolf bite has miraculously granted him powers and strange abilities that improve his performance on the lacrosse team and get him a date with the gorgeous new girl at school. Of course, his new powers come with a price.
