Description: The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. SCREAM QUEENS is a new killer comedy-horror series from award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”), Brad Falchuk (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”). 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,” “Scream 4”). But when anti-Kappa DEAN CATHY MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “True Lies”) 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.

Comments: This series comes from American Horror Story creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and will be a season-long anthology show just like that one.

Status: (Updated 11/25/16) This show’s numbers are at all-time lows (not surprisingly considering all the preemptions) and it has not demonstrated the same social network “stickiness” that it did in its first season. This will likely be its last season and then it will almost certainly get tacked on to the American Horror Story syndication package (which comes from the same producers and studio).

One thought on “Scream Queens

  1. Lee Tennant

    Derivative and unfunny. The silliness never felt fun but forced and the suspension of disbelief required for this to work was too much. Three brutal murders in the first episode alone and, after the first two, the girls agree to be hazed? Seriously? There’s so silly it’s good and so silly it’s just dumb.
