Scream Television Series: Can it Work Without Ghost Face?

MTV has ordered 10 episodes for a Scream television series from Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson, both who were involved with the original film series.  Set to air in October 2015, it already has several cast members listed.

There is only one issues with this series currently, the rights owner of Ghost Face has stated the character will NOT be involved with the television series, at least not at first.  It is unconfirmed if Ghost Face will make an appearance later in the series.  This begs to be asked, can you have Scream without Ghost Face?  Let me know what you think in the comments
