Ryan Murphy’s ‘Scream Queens’ casts Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts


Ryan Murphy’s horror-comedy anthology series on Fox, Scream Queens, has cast its first two major leads. The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis have been cast, but details on their characters are currently being kept under wraps.

Roberts has had experience working in the genre on Murphy’s American Horror Story and in 2011’s Scream 4. Curtis is the major get for the show, though, being that she is the original “scream queen” by the common definition we know today. The actress famously starred in Halloween, Halloween II, H20: Halloween 20 Years Later, The Fog, Prom Night, and Terror Train. Having a show called Scream Queens without Curtis’ inclusion would’ve have been a giant missed opportunity, so this news is especially exciting.

The series is set on a college campus where a series of murders begin to take place. Like American Horror Story, the series will feature a different setting, a standalone story, and a new cast of characters with each new season. The 15-episode first season will hit Fox during fall 2015.
