Fox is keeping Mulaney co-star Nasim Pedrad in the fold with a series regular role in its upcoming straight-to-series comedy-horror anthology Scream Queens, from Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Saturday Night Live alumna Pedrad is certain to infuse comedy in the first installment of the anthology series, slated for the fall, which revolves around a college campus that is rocked by a series of murders.
Pedrad, who has been in demand this pilot season, will join an ensemble cast that includes Lea Michele, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Nick Jonas, Keke Palmer, Joe Manganiello and Abigail Breslin. Scream Queens hails from 20th Century Fox and Ryan Murphy Television. Pedrad, repped by CAA, 3 Arts and Warren Dern, is recurring on another Fox/20th TV series, comedy New Girl.
