Barrymore portrayed Casey Becker in the opening scene of Scream (1996). The character and her boyfriend are killed separately by Ghostface, and their deaths spark a police investigation and frenzy of media attention.

Wes Craven, who directed all four Scream movies, will helm the series pilot. Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Connor Weil, Carlson Young, Amadeus Serafini, Joel Gretsch and Tracy Middendorf are confirmed for roles.

Scream will premiere a 10-episode season in October 2015. Thorne is known for portraying Tancy Henrickson on HBO series Big Love and CeCe Jones on Disney Channel sitcom Shake it Up, and will appear in Amityville: The Awakening in 2015.
