Scream Queens: Pilot  Season 1, Ep 1

In the latest horror-comedy-farce from the minds of Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy, the audience is introduced to the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority, which is being haunted by a figure in a red devil costume.

Chanel Oberlin is the current queen of the castle in KKT, and her general unpleasantness guides the opening intrigues of the show. Crusty old dean, Cathy Munsch, has cracked open the exclusive club of KKT (much to Chanel's dismay), leading a band of misfits to rush the sorority, and provide a cast of red shirts who will likely be picked off as the season progresses.
