Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts to Risk Their Lives On 'Scream Queens'

Fox's Scream Queens has scored some stellar talent for the 15-episode first season of what's described as a horror-comedy anthology.

Deadline reports that Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts have signed on to star in the first season, which focuses on a college campus plagued by a murderer. Created by Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan dreamed up the series, which will take the American Horror Story approach and feature a different set of characters each season.

Curtis made a name for herself in horror films like Halloween, Prom Night and Terror Train. She left the genre for a while, but returned in for the last two films in the original Halloween franchise, H20 and Resurrection.

Roberts is no stranger to the genre, either, having starred in Scream 4 and American Horror Story.
