Most series today simply put up a title card as their opening credits and call it day. Lazy bitches ;) Not to sound like a senior citizen, but I miss the days when elaborate opening sequences were the norm.

Ryan Murphy just shared the super-sized main title sequence for Scream Queens. I highly doubt the full version will air on the network, but I appreciate the effort. Not surprisingly, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas aren’t included in the clip given that they’re only billed as guest stars.

Scream Queens debuts on FOX on September 22. Check out the bloody intro below where Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and company show off their screaming skills.

Jessica Lange Teams Up With Ryan Murphy Again

In: Donovan, The Arts

For those hoping this means Jessica Lange is taking part in American Horror Story: Hotel, sadly you’ll be disappointed. The 66-year-old actress still hasn’t caved in. I still think though, she’ll make a surprise cameo during the FX anthology’s fifth season. Fingers crossed.

Lange is indeed reuniting with Ryan Murphy, but for something completely different. Find out below.

I believe I found my new greeting. Already, I greeted my friends with ‘hooker’ and now thanks to Ryan Murphy, I can call them idiots as well ;)

The first full official trailer for Scream Queens has finally arrived and it doesn’t disappoint. Regina George and the Plastics have nothing on Emma Robert’s uber bitchy character and her Heathers-like minions, The Chanels. Her sassy one-liners will make this horror-comedy hybrid must-watch television.

As if Hell Week wasn’t torture enough with all the hazing, the sorority is rocked when a devil-wearing killer commits a series of murders on campus. One poor pledge sadly meets her fate courtesy of a rogue lawnmower. LOL. Scream Queens will definitely be the watercooler show of the new season.

Roberts is joined by Jaime Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Oliver Hudson, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Skyler Samuels, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Lucien Laviscount, Glen Powell and guest stars Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. Speaking of the latter two, I predict they meet their maker early, given that they’re not featured heavily in the trailer. Check it out below.

When FOX presented at this year’s upfronts, Scream Queens was one show that didn’t have a trailer. A little odd, but I just assumed there wasn’t enough footage since they only recently began filming. Imagine my surprise and delight when the network dropped a new promo showing actual footage.

Most of the previous promos featured Emma Roberts in highly-stylized scenarios. This one titled “Pledges” shows the other cast members and a hint at the storyline. Roberts plays, not surprisingly, a ruthless sorority bitch while Michele ditches her Rachel Berry persona and shows up in an uncomfortable looking neck brace.

Check out the clip below which features several screaming queens. Not the college coed types but rather of the flaming variety ;) Scream Queens will air on Tuesdays this Fall.

American Crime Story is easily one of FOX’s most highly-anticipated new series. The new Ryan Murphy anthology will tackle the trail of the century for its first outing. The casting alone has been incredible.

American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson features a star-studded cast which includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as the Juice, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clarke, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, and Connie Britton as the morally-corrupt (RHOBH) Faye Resnick. Former Dallas star Jordana Brewster is the latest addition. Find out what role she’s playing below.

Praise baby Jesus!!! With Jessica Lange not taking part in American Horror Story: Hotel, I don’t think I could’ve handled a Sarah Paulson-less season of the FX horror series. Could you? Thankfully, she’s booked a hotel reservation for the fifth season.

“My focus will always be on American Horror Story for as long as he’ll have me,” Paulson told The Hollywood Reporter in December, ahead of her American Crime Story casting. “I have never felt so completely seen by another director or producer or person before in terms of his willingness time and time again to give me something to do that I didn’t even think I was capable of doing. I don’t know why in the world I’d want to go elsewhere when I’m getting the best deal in town. I absolutely want to do season five.”

Many fans wondered if the 40-year-old actress would even have time to participate given her lead role in Ryan Murphy’s highly-anticipated new offering, American Crime Story about the infamous OJ Simpson trial. Thankfully, Murphy and Paulson found a way to make it work. Read his tweet below teasing her new role.

Fittingly, FOX chose Friday the 13th to debut the first official promo for its new comedy-horror anthology Scream Queens. With filming yet to begin, no footage from the actual series is shown. Instead, a random girl appears blowing a bubblegum. Things go from peppy to bloody real fast in the 12-second teaser.

Scream Queens‘ 15-episode first season, which revolves around a college campus rocked by a series of murders, premieres this Fall on FOX. It boasts a star-studded cast which includes Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Joe Manganiello and the ultimate ‘scream queen’ Jamie Lee Curtis. Check out the promo below.

After checking out this video from HBO, I realize I watch a lot of the network’s programming. From Girls, True Blood, The Newsroom, Behind the Candelabra and Game of Thrones, clearly I’m a fan. I should really consider purchasing some stock.

The network released a video highlighting some of their best programming from the past year. It also gives a preview of what’s to come in 2014. Included in that bunch is the highly-anticipated new series Looking.

In addition, we also have footage from Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s Tony award-winning 1985 play The Normal Heart. It follows a group of gay men in New York in the 80s during the HIV/AIDS epidemic spread. It boasts a star-studded cast including Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch. Not sure how I feel about Taylor’s haircut and color, but I digress. The latter two are pictured in the photo above. The Normal Heart is scheduled to air in Spring 2014. Check out the video below.

“It’s a movie about AIDS, but it’s also really a civil rights movie,” says Ryan Murphy, who worked with Kramer on the script for three years. “I think it’s more timely than ever before. It’s really about the quest to be seen, not as a gay person or a straight person but just a person…. It’s an activist movie that also has a really great love story in it.” Adds the director, “Of everything I’ve done in my career, I think it is the biggest labor of love.”
