FMP Research

I have done a little research for my FMP but most of the information I have used is from my experience on the show Teen Wolf. The show is aired in the UK on MTV and online too. The show is about a boy called Scott McCall who is at school with his friend and one day gets bitten by a werewolf. This pains Scott and he feels himself changing. Whenever he gets angry, he would turn into a werewolf. Scott falls in love with the new girl, Allison who is setting up a plan to kill Scott and all the other werewolves in the area. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1567432/) Scott now has to try and balance his out of control life, figure out how to control his new powers, try not to be killed by the alpha wolf that bit him, and protect Allison whilst trying to keep her from finding out his big secret. The interview will be a story-telling interview where I will be asking Shaun, a fan as far as the interviewer is concerned. The interview will have no real ending because the idea is that the viewer will think of their own ending. The interview will consist of me asking Shaun a load of questions any interviewer would ask any fan but will have quiet, dramatic music in the background to make the audience become nervous and anxious. Then I, the interviewer, will ask Shaun why Derek Hale, the new alpha wolf in Teen Wolf, is his favourite character, as this would just be a standard fan to interviewer question. We will hear the music become slightly louder and see Shaun becoming agitated and shuffling around on his seat. This will all lead up to the big finale where we will see Shaun’s eyes turn from natural to glowing red like another alpha wolf. Then the screen fades to black and we hear a growl and loud howling before the interview ends where the audiences should try to picture their own endings.

The programme Teen Wolf is rated a ’15’ certificate which means anyone under 15 cannot and should not watch the programme. This is because they have very minor swear words and contain also lots of blood and violence.

Most of the high school scenes in Teen Wolf at Beacon Hills School are filmed on the campus of Palisades Charter High School in California, USA. (http://www.seeing-stars.com/Locations/TeenWolf/School.shtml).

The show is loosely based on the 1985 film of the same name but is far more serious and dramatic than the comedic 1985 Teen Wolf. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teen_Wolf_(2011_TV_series)).

Teen Wolf first premiered on 5th June 2011 following the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. On 9th July 2015, Teen Wolf was renewed for a sixth series of 20 episodes which premiered on 15th November 2016. Unfortunately, the show was ended at the beginning of this year but will not be aired in the UK until June 2016. Each series has had at least one million viewers on average. In October 2015, the United Kingdom’s Channel 5 had the rights to broadcast the show on Tuesday nights at 9pm. The channel premiered the first season on October 27, 2015 however channel 5 has not yet made any statements about the further broadcasting of the show.
