Can't Get Enough American Horror Story? Creators Creating New Horror-Comedy

Even though Glee is coming to an end, producers are excited to create a new series.

Brad Falchuk & Ryan Murphy have created a new horror series titled Scream Queens.
The network has already ordered 15 episodes that will premiere Fall 2015.
The premise of the show revolves around a group of murders that are consistently on a college campus. Murphy said: “I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens, We hope to create a whole new genre — comedy-horror — and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. We’ve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and we’re very grateful to [Fox TV Group chairmen and CEOs> Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman] for their enthusiastic support.” Walden & Newman said: "One of our top priorities at the network has been to get Ryan Murphy to create a new series for Fox. We loved every element of the pitch for this show — the genre-bending concept, which blends true horror with big comedic moments; the diverse and unforgettable characters and reuniting the phenomenal creative team that delivered Glee. Scream Queens will go straight to series. It’s a huge commitment and an expression of our faith in Ryan. We are ecstatic to have him, along with Brad, Ian and Dante as our partners on this exciting ride." Murphy and Falchuk will have three series on air.
