It's really the first look at one of the new series' stars in character, and the first taste of the comedy-horror tone the show hopes to strike. All good so far.
Scream Queens, like Murphy's AHS and the upcoming American Crime Story, is going to be an "anthology series," with each season being a self-contained miniseries. The first season "revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders and is set in a sorority house."
Jaime Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas are also set to star. Joe Manganiello was added to the cast as a regular last month, but according to The Wrap he dropped out a few days ago due to promotional obligations for Magic Mike XXL. The rumor, though, is that he might be joining Suicide Squad, which would have really conflicted with production.
Scream Queens is supposed to debut on Fox this fall.
