Emma Roberts And Jamie Lee Curtis Cast In Scream Queens

Ryan Murphy has found two of his leading ladies for his new comedy horror anthology, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hollywood legend Jamie Lee Curtis and American Horror Story alum, Emma Roberts, have been cast in the new Fox series, Scream Queens.

Set to premiere in the fall of 2015, the hourlong comedy is set on a college campus that's plagued by a series of murders. The series will center on three young women, Curtis's character, and a father.

Similar to Murphy's AHS, subsequent seasons will feature new settings and storylines in the anthology series.


Roberts starred in two seasons of AHS: Coven and Freak Show. A Golden Globe winner for her role in True Lies, Curtis is a horror icon who has starred in The Fog, Prom Night, Terror Train and the Halloween films.
