Fox is taking viewers behind the scenes of its next hopeful fall hit “Scream Queens” via a featurette released on Friday. The two-minute, 25-second promotional video includes episodic footage of the upcoming dark comedy — which takes place on a fictional college campus — as well as cast and creator interviews.
“It is a cross between ‘Heathers’ and ‘Friday the 13th,'” showrunner Ryan Murphy explains in the video.
“What I like about it is everyone has a motive to be behaving badly,” he added of the series’ murder mystery plot.
Also participating in the clip are stars Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and Keke Palmer, who add some insight into their Murphy-created characters. Clearly, the man behind “American Horror Story” and “Glee” has an affinity for the females on his latest small screen offering.
“These girls are kick-ass,” Murphy concluded. “They’re not waiting for a boy to come in and rescue them — they’re the ones doing the rescuing.”
“Scream Queens” is set to slay Fox viewers this September.
