Ryan Murphy, the creator of American Horror Story and Glee, is bringing us a new teen comedy/slasher anthology series that kind of combines the elements of the other shows that he has worked on. It's called Scream Queens, and it focuses on a sorority house that is terrorized by a serial killer known as the Red Devil.
American Horror Story alum Emma Roberts takes on the lead role of the Kappa House HBIC Chanel, while Jamie Lee Curtis plays the school dean. The series looks exactly like what you would expect from Murphy, and it looks like it could be a fun show.
The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. SCREAM QUEENS is a new killer comedy-horror series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning executive producers of GLEE and “American Horror Story.”
Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, CHANEL OBERLIN (Emma Roberts). But when anti-Kappa DEAN MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, SCREAM QUEENS is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder… or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.
The rest of the cast includes Lea Michele, Abigain Breslin, Nasim Pedrad,Oliver Hudson, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd,Diego Bonita, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas, and Ariana Grande.
