Lea Michele Says ‘Scream Queens’ is Not A Mix of ‘Glee’ and ‘American Horror Story’
“Scream Queens” is an upcoming horror-comedy series on Fox. Despite the confusion as to how a horror series can have a comedic spin, “Scream Queens” star Lea Michele clarified that the show is different from “Glee” and “American Horror Story.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“You won’t see any signs of ‘Glee’ in this show. And it’s even a totally different horror genre than ‘American Horror Story,’” said Lea Michele, Design & Trend reported.
According to the “Glee” actress, “Scream Queens” will be more like a mix between horror films such as “Scream” with a hint of “Mean Girls” added to it. Interesting, right?
Michele also revealed to ET that while the show may have a horror spin, “the first two scripts are so hilarious.”
While the 28-year-old actress admitted that she feels sad now that she is leaving “Glee,” Michele also expressed excitement over her brand new character.
Michele even recalled how different her “Scream Queens” character was from her “Glee” character as Rachel Berry.
During the “Glee” panel at PaleyFest, Michele said that while fans and viewers of the show may find a hard time forgetting her as Rachel Berry, viewers of “Scream Queens,” will not see her channel Rachel Berry in her new series.
She said that most of the staff from “Scream Queens” came from “Glee,” and she found it amusing that the staff barely recognized her on set when she came in character for new show.
“This is like my Charlize Theron in ‘Monster’ moment,” Michele remarked in an interview with USA Today.
According to ET, the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy also teased fans that every episode will leave them at the edge of their seats, wondering who will get killed on the next episode.
“The first installment in the new anthology series revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders,” described Fox on the new series, writes MailOnline.
The latest “Scream Queens” teaser, which features Keke Palmer, aired during the season finale of “Empire.”
Lea Michele will star alongside Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Emma Roberts, Keke Palmer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Diego Boneta, and Abigail Breslin.
