Jamie Lee Curtis has an exciting new gig as a stiff adversary in the new Fox show, Scream Queens.

Jamie Lee Curtis stars alongside Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele, Nick Jonas, and a slew of other teen stars.

On the show, Jamie Lee Curtis plays the role of Dean Munsch, a staunch opponent to sororities who orders that the one run by Emma Roberts' character, Chanel Oberlin, must admit any pledges who are interested.

Her order results in a battle between her, the various Chanels, and a demon-masked maniac who takes out someone in bloody fanfare during each episode.

Here we go. Tuesday's at 9 on FOX! #screamqueens

The Fox website describes the show in this way:

"The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. … Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts)."

It adds, "But when anti-Kappa Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) 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, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, Scream Queens is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder…or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty."
