ryan-murphyGlee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is working on a new horror-comedy series. Scream Queens has been picked up by American television network Fox for 15 hour-long episodes, which will go into production in early 2015. The first season of the anthology series will focus on a college campus rocked by a series of murders, according to The Wrap. Murphy is working on Scream Queens with Glee collaborators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. The series is expected to debut in autumn 2015. 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." Murphy's American Horror Story was recently renewed for a fifth season, following the premiere of its Freak Show season - read more about the current season here.
