Scream Queens: Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

FOX has ordered SCREAM QUEENS, a new genre-bending comedy-horror anthology series, it was announced today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group. The series, produced by 20th Century Fox Television, is from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto, the executive producers of Glee and American Horror Story.

The first installment in the new anthology series revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders.

FOX has ordered 15 one-hour episodes, which are scheduled to begin production in the spring and premiere in Fall 2015 on FOX. New settings and storylines will be featured in subsequent seasons of the anthology series.

I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing SCREAM QUEENS, commented Murphy. We hope to create a whole new genre comedy-horror and the idea is for every season to revolve around two female leads. Weve already begun a nationwide search for those women, as well as 10 other supporting roles, and were very grateful to Dana and Gary for their enthusiastic support.

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, said Walden and Newman.

SCREAM QUEENS will go straight to series. Its 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.

SCREAM QUEENS is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association Ryan Murphy Television. The series is co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan and Dante Di Loreto will serve as executive producers

What did everyone think about the pilot? 

Here's what I thought: 


Niecy, Jamie, and Keke were the only bright spots of this pilot. 


The show was just too jarring for me. So many parts of the plot didn't make logical sense. I can only suspend my belief so much.


For instance, the Dean forcing all the girls to stay at the sorority house till they figured out who the killer was. I'm sorry but that makes no [!@#$%^&*] sense. All those girls would be put in police protection until further notice. 


And for the first president of the sorority being killed (via spray tan) and the sorority to not be closed down is stupid. Sorry but a board trustees would've all closed down the sorority until further notice. 


Last plot point that was just stupid for me was when the Dean and the main character, Grace, father were talking and he wanted to get her out the sorority house and the Dean convinced him that it was safer for her to stay in a house where a girl had recently been killed. 


I'm sorry but what parent would agree to that? None. They would've snatched their child out of that school altogether and sent them somewhere else. 


Ryan Murphy is like the yt version of Tyler Perry as both of them just write sh-t that isn't cohesive. It's like they just take crap and throw it against the wall and what stick, stays. Just like TP, I cannot invest in Murphy's shows for a long period of time. My mind and screenwriter spirit won't allow me.

I watched as well. Terribly ridiculous plot.  I love crap like this after a bad day, because it's so OTT that you just bust out the popcorn, (liquor), ice cream or whatever your comfort treat is...It made the Scream movies look Oscar worthy, but coming from Ryan Murphy, what did we expect.  Quippy one liners, bad pop culture references, etc...


Scene of the night: deaf pledge mouthing the words to Taylor Swift song until she saw the mower

Nick Jonas looked great, as always.  Jaime Lyn Curtis is always a fave of mine. Even irritating Rachel Berry was well, funny as F*ck with Dismemberment 101. Nasim  Pedrad has yet to ever disappoint me. Gurl is funny.  And Niecy, well, LMFAO at her.


All in all the plot wasn't what I tuned in for, so I wasn't really too disappointed. After the week I'm having, it made me laugh.

I caught this show by just flipping channels. I hadn't even heard of it or on here. I noticed Nick Jonas right away. I saw he was acting well rather gay…LOL….then to realize later he was playing a gay character ….LOL


I thought the show was rather blah with what I saw…..I might check it out again next week…hope its not the 2 hour again next week though….I thought it was only an hour and didnt tune in to the 2nd hour.

    • Can't wait!! Seasons 8-10 is very high praise indeed!
    • @CatI feel like Tamra was the missing piece of the puzzle, but this is a good set up for her to return next year. It felt like classic RHOC like seasons 8-10. They gave you everything, but with the elevation that Heather brought when she first joined. Even Emily and Gina felt right. It felt like no time had passed. I didn't miss or even think about Kelly Dodd.
    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
