She explained the premise of the show to the audience of tv execs by saying,
“‘Scream Queens’ is about these young girls living in college that are a part of a sorority, and then also some girls that are trying to become a part of the sorority, but that’s not the only thing it’s about,” Palmer told us. “There is also a murder that’s happening at the school at the same time and you are trying to figure out who did it. Is it your favorite character? Is it not? And you are also hoping that none of the people you love die.”
Scream Queens” will anchor Fox’s new Tuesday lineup at 9 p.m.
This fall, Morris Chestnut is set to star in the medical drama “Rosewood” which will air Wednesday nights at 8PM (right before “Empire”). Great time slot! Morris plays Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, – a gifted pathologist who finds the secrets in corpses that others usually miss.
Terry Crews is on-board to host the unscripted comedy series World’s Funniest Fails, inspired by the best “epic fail” viral videos.
Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. will lead season one of Season One of “American Crime Story,” the new anthology series that will cover the trial of former NFL star O.J. Simpson, who was acquitted in 1995 of murder. Cuba will play O.J. He told the AP,
“People keep asking me whether I think he did it or not, and I don’t think that’s the goal here, to prove his innocence or his guilt. I think it’s more us putting the judicial system under the spotlight … We try to find a truth in the moment so that we can find answers. I think this 10 hours of television is gonna be very powerful, and I think a lot of people are going to learn a lot.”
John Travolta will portray Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer will portray Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson of “American Horror Story” fame will play Marcia Clark, and Courtney B. Vance will portray Johnnie Cochran.
