Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer John Stamos continues to captivate audiences with an array of multi-faceted performances across television, film and theater. With a career spanning 30 years, Stamos has become one of the most revered television stars of his generation. In 2016, Stamos won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actor in a New TV Series, for his role on FOX’s “Grandfathered,” and was awarded TV Land's Timeless Icon Award, presented to him by longtime friend and mentor Garry Marshall. Earlier this year, “Fuller House,” a multi-camera comedy spin-off of iconic comedy “Full House,” premiered, with Stamos serving as a producer and guest star. The series was recently renewed for a second season. Stamos’ additional television credits include “General Hospital,” “Necessary Roughness,” “Galavant,” “Entourage,” “Two and A Half Men” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” as well as the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning drama “ER.” As a producer, Stamos is in development with Twentieth Century Fox and Academy Award-winning producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, on a musical feature set to the songs of the Beach Boys. 

 

Stamos also has established a strong stage presence, beginning with his Broadway debut in “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” as “J. Pierrepont Finch.” Other Broadway credits include Gore Vidal's Tony Award-nominated political play, “The Best Man,” with James Earl Jones; Roundabout Theatre Company’s “Bye Bye Birdie”; and the Tony Award-winning musicals “Nine” and “Cabaret.” Additional theater credits include “Hairspray” and “The Little Mermaid” at the Hollywood Bowl. A gifted drummer, singer and musician, Stamos occasionally tours with the legendary band the Beach Boys, of which he's been a part for 30 years. As an advocate for Project Cuddle, Stamos serves as the non-profit’s national spokesperson and Chairman of the advisory board, and has been a supporter of the charity for nearly 10 years.

About the Show

The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. SCREAM QUEENS is a new killer comedy-horror series from award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”), Brad Falchuk (“Glee,” “American Horror Story”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”).

Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by CHANEL OBERLIN (Emma Roberts, “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” “Scream 4”). But when anti-Kappa DEAN CATHY MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis, “Halloween,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “True Lies”) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc across the campus.

An over-the-top, biting satire, SCREAM QUEENS is part black comedy, part slasher flick and a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder…or could easily be the next victim.   

SCREAM QUEENS has an all-star cast, including Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Lea Michele (“Glee”), Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “Zombieland,” “August: Osage County”), Nasim Pedrad (“Mulaney,” “Saturday Night Live”), Oliver Hudson (“Nashville,” “Rules of Engagement”), Skyler Samuels (“American Horror Story: Coven”), Keke Palmer (“Akeela and the Bee,” “Masters of Sex”), newcomer Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta (“Rock of Ages”), Glen Powell (“The Expendables 3”), Lucien Laviscount (“Episodes”), Niecy Nash (“Getting On,” “The Soul Man”), pop superstar and actor Nick Jonas (“Kingdom”) and Grammy Award nominee and actress Ariana Grande.
