Scream Queens has been picked up in the UK by E4, following the successful premiere in the US.
The show is produced by Ryan Murphy, who created American Horror Story and wrote Glee.
The modern series will air on E4 this Autumn, staring Jamie Lee Curtis, Ariana Grande, Emma Roberts and Nick Jonas.
Channel 4 released a press statement:
“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.”
The show has received fairly positive reviews from critics, with many branding the show as “refreshing.”
An exact premiere date has is yet to be confirmed by Channel 4, however it will most likely debut on E4 around Halloween.
The pilot of Scream Queens is scary, funny and gory, worth a watch if you enjoyed the likes of American Horror Story.
