Scream Queens Video: Meet the Outcasts of Fox's New Slasher Comedy

When it comes to her role in Fox’s Scream Queens, Lea Michele says she knows exactly what sealed the deal: “I think it was really just because [Ryan Murphy] was afraid of the meltdown of post-Glee for me.”

This is one of several candid thoughts Michele shares in TVLine’s exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the slasher comedy, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c.

We also have a new interview with Keke Palmer, in which she reveals how she found out she landed the role of Zayday. (Hint: It should inspire everyone to book a vacation to Jamaica, immediately.) Check that out below:

Last, but certainly not least, is this video from Skyler Samuels, who shares her own personal connection to the show. (Should Murphy be giving her a co-creator credit?)

Hit PLAY on the videos above, then drop a comment below: From what you’ve seen, who’s your favorite Scream Queen so far?

    Okay, Keke Palmer is infectiously awesome. I really am interested to see her act.

    Hester looks like a hoot, Zayday could be a strong presence and sadly I think Grace will have that role that is necessary but not that interesting.

    Why do they have a girl in a back brace as an outcast?! House Bunny?! Seriously, if they were making fun of the gays and lesbians, it would be a no- go! My cousin had to wear a back brace after having surgery, and she was the most popular girl in school, regardless of the back brace. What an ass, whoever came up with the idea!

      Honestly, at this point you have to know that some aspect of a Ryan Murphy show will be offensive and terrible, so it’s kind of our faults that we continue to tune in.

      The show is an homage to the horror/slasher films in the 80s. I think they’re playing on that cliche for the show.

    • geez says:

      It is a satire a goof on all the horror movie and mean girl type movies. Its not be taken seriously. So much faux concern

      • Steph says:

        I agree much ado about nothing. It is a dark comedy making fun of a lot of things. It isn’t here to teach morals.

    • Too much says:

      Haha people’s sensibilities now days.

    This show will have one good season then go off the rails since it’s Ryan Murphy. Watch this year then split.

    So excited about the show but the less interviews with Lea Michele, the better. You can just feel the arrogance. Loving the other two girls though!
