Ryan Murphy may have (falsely) claimed to have invented the horror-comedy genre for his new show Scream Queens, but at least his casting is still spot-freaking-on. The new series welcomes the biggest Scream Queen of them all.


Today it was announced that one of the original scream queens, Jamie Lee Curtis, is also one of the first cast members announced for the Scream Queens show. With her comes Emma Roberts who has been getting a lot of good work in the horror biz thanks to Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story. Both Murphy and Falchuck will be working on SQ as well. According to Deadline, "the 15-episode first installment of the anthology series, slated for next fall, revolves around a college campus that is rocked by a series of murders."

Can't wait.
