‘Scream Queens’: Ryan Murphy differentiates show from ‘American Horror Story’

Scream Queens -This fall, Ryan Murphy is serving up a double-dose of horror on Fox courtesy of “Scream Queens” and “American Horror Story.” These are two different shows that are each bringing at least a few scares to the table, but Ryan Murphy is still doing what he can to remind you of one simple thing: One of these shows is not necessarily like the other.

While at the TCA Summer Press Tour Thursday, the prolific showrunner did just about everything in his power to show that “Scream Queens” is meant to be the more comedic cousin of the two shows, while “American Horror Story” is so much darker and can do a variety of different things that the other show cannot:

“They’re very tonally different … Scream Queens has a much more satirical, cartoonish quality to the attacks than American Horror does, which is much more sexualized and darker at times.”

One of the more interesting discussion points from Murphy’s appearance (and one that is pretty indicative of some of the bizarre issues going on right now in the TV industry is how Fox had more of a problem at times with the amount of language and remarks in “Scream Queens” that they did most of the violence. Therefore, the producers / writers are probably having to find way to be very creative when it comes to doing / saying different things.

We’re going to have some other news coming up very soon on “Scream Queens,” so be on the outlook for that in the weeks ahead.
