Ryan Murphy has found his scream queens.
The creator of Glee and American Horror Story is prepping what he calls a “whole new genre” of “comedy-horror” with a new anthology that has cast two stars so far.
Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis–who got her big break with a lot of shrieking in the 1978 scary staple Halloween–will star in Scream Queens, which premieres next fall on Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Murphy had previously said that the production was conducting a nationwide search for “two female leads … as well as 10 other supporting roles.”
It’s not yet known which characters they will play, but the first season will take place at a college campus that’s become the site of several murders. Like American Horror Story — which Roberts has appeared on — later seasons of the show will feature entirely new plots.
