While the entire show is not based on a singular story, Emma Roberts’ character, Chanel, is actually based on a real-life e-mail sent by a sorority sister of Delta Gamma of the University of Maryland. The e-mail contained a homophobic and racist discussion on how the sorority members should behave. The member apologized and resigned after the sorority manifesto went viral. The creators of Scream Queens aimed, with Chanel’s role, to bring a completely spiteful character to the big screen and make her aware of her own shortcomings. Ryan Murphy, one of the creators, also promised one death each episode! 

For classic horror film fans, in the show, Jamie Lee Curtis pays homage to her mother, Janet Leigh who starred in the movie Psycho by recreating a shot-by-shot of the infamous shower scene.
