TEACHING MRS. TINGLE
Making his directorial debut with TEACHING
MRS. TINGLE is KEVIN WILLIAMSON, who has quickly established
himself as one of Hollywood's most creative and entertaining minds.
It all started in 1996 with the horror send-up Scream and
its 1997 sequel Scream 2. Williamson drew on his childhood
love of scary movies to create and write what have become two
of the highest grossing horror films ever, amassing a total of
over $200 million domestically. Both films were directed by Wes
Craven, featuring starmaking performances by Neve Campbell, Courteney
Cox and David Arquette.
With the Scream films as well as I Know What You Did
Last Summer, another 1997 box office phenomenon, Williamson
forged a new era in horror and reinvigorated the participation
of a prime audience member: the teenager. He also wrote last year's
The Faculty, the Robert Rodriguez directed sci-fi thriller.
On the television front, Williamson teamed with Columbia Television
and the Warner Bros. Network for the television series Dawson's
Creek, a provocative coming-of-age drama about a group of
teenagers navigating the perils of growing up. Starring James
'Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams,
Dawson's Creek is the highest-rated WB show of all time.
Williamson is developing new projects for both film and television.
His new TV creation is Wasteland, a drama about pre-30
something life in New York City.
He is also directing and producing Her Leading Man for
Universal Pictures this fall. Williamson was born to a fisherman
and a story-telling mother in New Bern, North Carolina. He studied
theater and film at East Carolina University, then headed for
New York to work as an actor. After moving to Los Angeles, he
decided to bank on his lifelong love of story-telling and write
a screenplay. That screenplay turned out to be TEACHING MRS. TINGLE.
