Ryan Murphy's 'Scream Queens' Goes Straight to Series at Fox

Glee and American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy has another series headed to television. According to Deadline, Fox has ordered the anthology Scream Queens straight to series with a 15-episode first season.

The comedy-horror anthology comes from Murphy and his Glee co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Scream Queens will kick off with a story set on a college campus beset by murders.

"I knew I wanted to work with Brad and Ian again on something comedic, and we are having a blast writing Scream Queens," Murphy said. "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] Dana [Walden] and Gary [Newman] for their enthusiastic support."

Following the success of American Horror Story, Murphy has pretty much become the modern master of the anthology series. In addition to Scream Queens, Murphy's American Crime Story was also given a straight-to-series order by FX.
