Scream Queens Adds Nasim Pedrad

Nasim Pedrad Scream Queens

Fresh off her starring role in Mulaney, Nasim Pedrad is moving on to her next spooky project with a lead role in Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, our sister site Deadline reports.

The first season of Fox’s comedy-horror anthology, premiering this fall, takes place at a college campus rocked by a series of brutal murders. Pedrad joins previously announced series regulars Jamie Lee Curtis (NCIS), Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), Lea Michele (Glee), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) and Keke Palmer (Masters of Sex).

In addition to Mulaney, former SNL-er Pedrad recently popped up in an episode of New Girl.

    I heard that Emma, Abigail and Lea would be the stars, can anyone confirm?

  2. Eric says:

    This cast is absolutely phenomenal. I’m actually excited for a new Ryan Murphy series.

    • Sally says:

      I’m excited for it to be a smash, and then have Ryan abandon it by season 2, where it will die a slow death and fade into obscurity.

  3. TVNerd says:

    just curious…who pays for all this star talent? Ryan murphy as producer? or Fox?

  4. behzadbyhimself says:

    If this is like anything else Murphy makes, it’s big on star-power but the storytelling quality will slowly diminish.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Interesting Nasim is gonna do the show. Good to have her back on TV again.

  6. Brandy says:
