Scream Queens creator Ryan Murphy has released the opening title sequence for his new horror/comedy anthology series. Murphy has been developing some fantastic TV shows lately, and I think Scream Queens has the makings of a huge hit. As a horror fan, it's also a series I'm looking forward to watching,
The series focuses on a sorority house that is terrorized by a serial killer known as the Red Devil, who is featured prominently in the opening sequence along with several of cast members. The series stars Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedrad, Oliver Hudson, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Diego Bonita, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
It was previously revealed that only four of the 25 characters in the series are expected to survive the first season, which is pretty awesome. I don't think anything like that has been done before on a TV series, which is an impressive. Here's the synopsis:
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.
It's set to premiere on Tuesday, September 22nd on Fox. This seems like one of those shows that will be fun to watch with a group of friends. To watch the trailer for the series, click here.
