Fox greenlights horror comedy 'Scream Queens' from 'Glee' creators
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the minds behind American Horror Story, are staying in the scary business: Fox has ordered a new horror-comedy called Scream Queens from the pair and their Glee co-creator Ian Brennan.
Queens is an anthology series much like AHS and the first season, to debut in Fall 2015 with 15 episodes, will be about a college campus rocked by murders; latter seasons will be in different locations and have different plots.
In a statement, Murphy said, “I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens. We hope to create a whole new genre—comedy-horror—and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and we’re very grateful to Dana and Gary for their enthusiastic support.”
An anthology series that centers on different characters and locations, including a haunted house, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, and a hotel.
