Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuk’s new anthology series Scream Queens premiered in the US this week, but it also managed to bag itself a UK broadcaster.
Ever the hero, E4 picked up the show for the first season. There’s no specific air date just yet, but it’s set to air later this autumn.
Read E4’s official synopsis for Scream Queens here:
Part black comedy, part slasher flick, the hotly anticipated Scream Queens is coming to E4 this autumn. The series is a modern take on a whodunit in which every character has a motive for murder… or could easily be the next victim.
Kappa House, an American university sorority for girls has recovered from the catastrophic events of 1995 after a sorority party ended in tragedy, and is now the most sought-after sorority for pledges (for potential new members), ruled with an iron fist (adorned in a pink glove) by Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts, American Horror Story: Freak Show, Scream 4). But all hell breaks loose when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween, A Fish Called Wanda) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite. To make matters even worse, a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc across the campus on the 20th anniversary of the party.
Scream Queens also stars Skyler Samuels (The DUFF), Lea Michele (Glee), Glen Powell (Expendables 3), Diego Boneta (Rock Of Ages), Abigail Breslin (Maggie) and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP).
