MTV's "Scream" is just one of the dozens of movie adaptations making its way to the small screen.

For new, younger audiences, MTV's series may be the first experience with the franchise. Others may have grown up with the self-referential horror franchise. So, where does MTV's "Scream" sit on that spectrum?

"First off, it completely honors the franchise and fans of the franchise will love this and I think it also will bring a whole new group of fans to it," former MTV programming president, founder of production studio DiGa, and an executive producer on the "Scream" series, Tony DiSanto, tells Business Insider.

"You don’t have to have seen the films to jump right into this. It’s almost like the Christopher Nolan sort of reboot of 'Scream.'"

Making the "Scream" TV series has brought together several personal and career points for DiSanto: From working with one of the original producers of 1996's "Scream," Bob Weinstein, and returning to MTV with the project (where he also produces "Teen Wolf.")

On MTV's "Scream," a viral video begins to cause havoc for the teenagers of Lakewood. Those escalate into a murder and secrets begin to become uncovered.

Here are three things DiSanto told us to expect from the new "Scream" series:

"I don’t want to give too much away but I think it’s safe to say that you’ll see some surprises along the way," he teased.

"Scream" premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m. on MTV.
