Winner will appear in next 'Saw' film

VH1 has picked up a second season of Lionsgate reality skein “Scream Queens.”

As was the case in season one, winner of the competition will appear in the studio’s next “Saw” film. That horror franchise has been a gold mine for Lionsgate, and the “Scream” skein allows the mini-major to coordinate crossover biz between its film and TV entities.

Contestants are put through horror film boot camp, including how to work with creatures and gore. Actress Jamie King will host.

New season is expected to launch in 2010. Joke Prods. also produces.
