Scream Queens is an American horror-comedy anthology television series created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, in which the first season is centered on a series of murders involving the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority.
The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges...
Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts, American Horror Story: Freak Show).
But when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween) 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 across the campus.
An over-the-top, biting satire, Scream Queens is part black comedy, part slasher flick and a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder... or could easily be the next victim.
Scream Queens has an all-star cast including Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele (Glee), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Nasim Pedrad (Mulaney), Oliver Hudson (Nashville), Skyler Samuels (American Horror Story: Coven), Keke Palmer (Masters of Sex), newcomer Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta (Rock of Ages), Glen Powell (The Expendables 3), Lucien Laviscount (Episodes), Niecy Nash (Getting On), pop superstar and actor Nick Jonas (Kingdom) and Grammy Award nominee and actress Ariana Grande.
Scream Queens is from Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, who also serve as writers and directors on the series.
Scream Queens is executive-produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan and Alexis Martin Woodall (American Horror Story: Hotel).
The series premiered in the USA on Fox and in South Africa on FOX Africa with a double bill - thereafter episodes broadcast weekly, except for the season finale, which was also a double bill.
