Tonight sees the long awaited premiere of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series Scream Queens on Fox. Much in the style of American Horror Story it’s planned that each season will have a different setting but with the series being marketed as more horror-comedy than the all out horror of AHS.
As the series begins Chanel Oberlin (played by Emma Roberts) is queen of Kappa House, the most popular sorority house at Wallace University. Dean Cathy Munsch is keen to ensure though that Chanel doesn’t just fill the frat house with the University’s elite and that she leaves the door open to all students. Things start to go seriously awry when a killer starts to wreak havoc across the campus.
The series also features Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Oliver Hudson, KeKe Palmer, Nick Jonas, Nasim Pedrad and Glen Powell. It’s produced by Ryan Murphy Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loretom who already have the hit series “Glee” and “American Horror Story” under their belts.
