You recall a few months back when I was telling you about the new Ryan Murphy penned TV series that was getting pitched to FX titled ‘Scream Queens’? Well, let me refresh your memory just in case.
The first eyebrow raising moment came when we heard that Ryan Murphy – who has solid horror cred because of his involvement in ‘American Horror Story’ was going to team up with fellow ‘Glee’ creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Yeah – ‘Glee’ doesn’t rate to highly on most horror fans weekly viewing lists. But still, the interest was there. Now comes some really interesting news as it has been announced that the 15 episode first season will star none other than Jamie Lee Curtis. A true horror icon for sure.
Joining Jamie Lee with be Emma Roberts whom has worked with Murphy a lot the last few years having starring roles in the last two seasons of ‘American Horror Story’.
The inclusion of Jamie Lee Curtis certainly changes my plans on watching this one. Count me in!
The show is slated for a fall of 2015 debut and most are assuming it is going to go to FX but no official announcement has yet to be made. Keep it here, updates as required.
