TRAILER: ‘Scream Queens’ Latest Promo

by Jordan McGuire on June 23, 2015

The most recent teaser trailer of the New Orleans-shot Scream Queens, the genre blending horror-comedy anthology series, shows the underlying motives of the Wallace University Red Devil mascot. A couple of months ago, show creator Ryan Murphy claimed that the identity of the killer would be revealed at the end of the show. Fans can see the killer eyeing his/her future victims from outside of the majestic sorority house.

In the trailer, we see each cast member together at a sorority party. Inside the house, there’s an abundance of red solo cups and the song “Die Tonight?” by Charli XCX keeping the party alive. We see Emma Roberts and Abigail Breslin; the unwanted pledges, Keke Palmer and Lea Michele; and the dean and scream queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. The party is rocking inside as the killer waits just beyond the front doors wielding a familiar knife.

The first season of Scream Queens is set to premiere this fall on Fox. The lethal cast includes Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas, Skyler Samuels, Billie Lourd and Oliver Hudson.

Each week at least one character will be killed, though it is unclear which character will be killed off first. After reading the YouTube comments – I don’t suggest this tactic – many think Jamie Lee Curtis could be the mystery killer. Leave a comment below and tell us who you think the killer is.

TRAILER: ‘Scream Queens’

by Jordan McGuire on May 17, 2015

The first real trailer for Fox’s Scream Queens is upon us, and it’s a “Good evening, idiots.” Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) greets us and her pledges in the opening scene. The New Orleans-shot horror/comedy anthology series is created by Glee architect Ryan Murphy.

The teaser trailers for the show featured pink bubble gum, knives and blood. You can check out those teaser trailers here. This new trailer shows the hierarchy of the Kappa Kappa Tau house and it shows Chanel Oberlin solely atop of the food chain. The trailer shows the hilariously nerdy Lea Michele, donning her neck brace and executing peculiar upper body twitches. Ariana Grande is featured screaming like a beautiful, glowing sun goddess (stolen from Leslie Knope). The new trailer also shows the original Scream Queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis saying, “Worst case scenario. There is a serial killer on the loose.”

The first season is set to premiere in October, set on a college campus that is rocked by a series of murders. The deadly cast includes Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas, Skyler Samuels, Billie Lourd and Oliver Hudson. Scream Queens is produced by 20th Century Fox and Ryan Murphy Television.

TEASER: New Orleans-Shot ‘Scream Queens’

by Jordan McGuire on April 14, 2015

Initially we saw Emma Roberts blowing the now-iconic Scream Queens pink chewing gum bubble. Now we see Emma Roberts holding the knife, using the blade as a mirror and she applies blood red lipstick. Other promos included Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) cooly blowing a bubble that eventually pops by the force of an inner demon. Also, watch the very first teaser trailer here.

Thus far, Murphy has released four similar teaser trailers for his new horror-comedy series. Scream Queens follows a series of murders that leaves a college campus in shambles. Emma Roberts will star with Keke Palmer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele and Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas will have recurring roles in the premiere season.

Scream Queens has been scouting locations in New Orleans and has been filming its fifteen episode order since early March. The show is expected to be released on Fox in late October. Visit the Scream Queens Daily Buzz website here.

Last week on American Idol, New Orleans native Quentin Alexander sang “I Put a Spell on You” and received high praise from the judges, the voters and Dr. Funkenstein himself, George Clinton. This week, the Mcdonough 35 alum smoothly belted Stevie Wonder’s “Master Blaster.” Alexander wowed the judges and wooed the audience with his reggae spin on the Stevie Wonder classic.

Alexander closed out the show with his rendition of “Master Blaster.” He and seven other male contestants would advance, solidifying his spot in the top sixteen. Jennifer Lopez said, “I’m so glad you’re here,” after Alexander’s polished performance. The 2015 Jazz Festival artist Keith Urban chimed in to the same tune adding, “You know who you are, you know what song suits you, you know what plays to your strengths. You know how to look, how to move, how to sing. That’s why it was a bullseye.”

JC-Idol-webAnother New Orleans hopeful is street performer Joey Cook. Although American Idol claims her hometown is Woodbridge, Virginia, she has been busking on the bustling streets of the Big Easy in the months prior to the airing of the show. Cook sports an odd look and says, “Anywhere else in the US, people kind of double-take and think, ‘Oh, that girl looks so weird.’ In New Orleans, I blend in, kind of. I fit a little bit more down there. It’s way more my speed. It’s a very artistic city, which I’ve always been very drawn to.”

There’s finally a reason to watch the aging Fox show. So tune in, sit back and watch the New Orleans spirit shine. The top twelve finalists will be revealed Wednesday, March 11 at 8pm on Fox.




Televisionary Ryan Murphy has found wild success on TV with Glee, Nip/Tuck and American Horror Story, which has shot its two most recent seasons in New Orleans. Now, after directing and producing the critically acclaimed TV movie The Normal Heart, Murphy will be bringing his newest show back to the Crescent City.

Scream Queens will star Glee alum Lea Michelle, American Horror Story star Emma Roberts, Little Miss Sunshine standout Abigail Breslin and even singer Ariana Grande will be making regular appearances. True Blood’s Joes Manganiello and Akeela and the Bee’s Keke Palmer will also star, along with horror film legend Jamie Lee Curtis.

The new show is Murphy’s next from his Glee team of Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. The trio will executive produce along with Dante Di Loreto for 20th Century Fox TV.

Like American Horror StoryScream Queens will be an anthology series, one that revolves around a college campus that is rocked by a series of murders. The first season will consist of fifteen one-hour episodes set to premiere this fall on Fox.

Scream Queens is now scouting for locations in New Orleans and is expecting to begin filming the first of its fifteen ordered episodes in early March.
