There’s nothing stopping producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk in their quest for complete domination of the alternative TV docket. The pair first made waves when they introduced the world to the destructive lives of plastic surgeons in Nip/Tuck before they redefined serial television with the hugely popular American Horror Story for FX.
For their mainstream musical venture at Fox, the duo rounded out their “sound” by bringing in producer Ian Brennan for teen comedy Glee. With that show currently tying up its final season, Fox isn’t letting their winning trio slip through their fingers, as they’ve just given Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan’s next project, Scream Queens, a 15-episode straight-to-series order.
Slated to be a comedy-horror anthology, the show will debut in fall 2015 and revolve around a similar framework to American Horror Story. Each season will begin with a brand new story, set in new locations with entirely different characters. »

Ryan Murphy will freak people out for the foreseeable future: The "American Horror Story" creator has just inked a deal to make a new horror-comedy hybrid anthology series for Fox, set to debut next fall.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first season will be comprised of 15 hour-long episodes, "revolving around a college campus that's rocked by a series of murders."

It doesn’t get much more meta than this. A couple years back, Ryan Murphy came to Jason Blum and showed him the cult classic original The Town That Dreaded Sundown, the tale of a masked murderer in Texarkana who commits vicious and brutal crimes. Murphy informed Blum that he wanted to reboot the movie, and with the help of Afterlife with Archie scribe Roberto Saguirre-Acasa, they have crafted a smart and visceral horror film.
The story is pretty ambitious, but entirely original. In the new film, the original film exists and was a fictionalized retelling of murders that did actually occur in Texarkana. The people of the rural traditionally Southern town show the movie annually at a drive-in, unabashedly honoring the murders by entertaining themselves, almost mocking the grim account.
