All three have previously worked together on Glee, which Falchuk co-created with Murphy. Murphy and Falchuk also created American Horror Story together.
A number of actors from AHS and Glee also have roles on Scream Queens, including Roberts. Roberts and Grande star alongside Lea Michele (Glee), Keke Palmer (Masters of Sex), Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies), Oliver Hudson (Rules of Engagement) and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine). Roberts, Breslin and Grande play sorority sisters, with Roberts’ character as the ring leader. Curtis plays the college dean who is up against the sororities. The sorority sisters begin to be picked off by a mysterious killer but his motive is unknown, as EW reports.
