*Keke Palmer was at Fox’s Upfront presentation on Monday with her fellow cast members of “Scream Queens,” the upcoming comedy/horror anthology series from “American Horror Story” creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy.
“‘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.”
Below, Palmer tells us about her character, Zayday (which she pronounces “Zay-duh”), and warns viewers to expect the unexpected:
“Scream Queens” will anchor Fox’s new Tuesday lineup at 9 p.m., preceded by new half-hour comedies “Grandfathered” (starring John Stamos) at 8 p.m. and “The Grinder” (starring Rob Lowe) at 8:30 p.m. [Tuesday’s previous 8 p.m. occupant “Sleepy Hollow” moves to Thursdays at 9 p.m. after “Bones.”]
“Scream Queens” also stars Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Abigail Breslin and Jamie Lee Curtis.
