Lionsgate and VH1 is looking for actresses who aren't afraid to scream! (and who probably might have to take their tops off!)
The cable network has green-lighted Scream Queens, a series that will gather 10 unknown actresses to compete for a "major" role in a horror movie from Lionsgate. The contestants will compete in challenges and be schooled by acting coach John Homa. Their skills and progress will be judged by an unidentified director from Lionsgate's roster. [This could mean members of the 'boy's club' like Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel 1 & 2), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2-900), Tai West (Cabin Fever 2), James Wan (Saw), OR there is a remote chance that a woman could direct it, like Lexi Alexander (Punisher: Warzone)] Now, if they are going to be in a bad horror movie from Lionsgate, why they need "acting lessons" is beyond me. As far as I am concerned, the best acting lesson ever is to make a bad movie and then watch yourself in it. That will teach you what not to do. Trust me.
VH1 has purchased eight sixty-minute episodes of Scream Queens. The series is set to premiere in the fall.
