Finally premiering tonight on FOX, SCREAM QUEENS is the highly anticipated new series from TV’s golden-boys RYAN MURPHY and BRAD FALCHUK. Attempting to combine humor and horror in a slick, stylish way the story is set in a college sorority house plagued by a masked murderer and the action revolves around a band of bitchy mean girls and a rag-tag collection of loser pledges. The humor is broad and the horror is bloody but the two components don’t always mix.
On the up-side: MURPHY and FALCHUK have assembled an inspired cast that’s a real pleasure to watch. In addition to JAMIE LEE CURTIS (the godmother of all scream queens), EMMA ROBERTS, LEA MICHELE, DIEGO BONETA, ABIGAIL BRESLIN, KEKE PALMER, OLIVER HUDSON, NIECY NASH and NICK JONAS all bring their A-game.
Earlier this summer, RYAN MURPHY addressed reporters at a TCA press conference to promote the show and recounted how he pitched the series to JAMIE LEE CURTIS. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
