VH1 is looking for actresses who arent afraid to scream.

The cable network has greenlighted Scream Queens, a series from Lionsgate that will gather 10 unknown actresses to compete for a major role in a horror movie from Lionsgate Films. The contestants will compete in challenges and be schooled by acting coach John Homa. Their skills and progress will be judged by an unnamed director from Lionsgates roster.

The series, consisting of eight hourlong episodes, is set to premiere in the fall.

Said Kevin Beggs, Lionsgates president of TV programming and production, VH1 has had a tremendous track record in launching alternative programming that captures viewers imaginations its the perfect home for Scream Queens.
