The creators of American Horror Story have struck again! Ryan Murphy and Brad Felchuk – along with Ian Brennan – have sold a fifteen episode horror-comedy series called Scream Queens to FOX.
The series is planned as anthology series with dual female leads in new stories each season. The first season will take place on a college campus where a series of murders has everyone running scared – and premiere in Fall, 2015.
Though the press release (following the jump) doesn’t say so explicitly, the series title calls to mind such legendary scream queens like Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer and Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s a proud tradition going all the way back to Fay Wray in King Kong.
