WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Fox predicts a heavy outpouring of good fortune ahead of the premieres of two of its most anticipated shows: Scream Queens and Empire.

The first season of Queens and the second of Empire will reportedly air on all Fox International channels within a day of their domestic debuts. The strategy is a trend among high-profile domestic series, Variety reports, because of the global social media traffic it warrants.

"Hollywood is waking up to how instrumental it is to harness the collective voices of outspoken international fans, especially for water-cooler shows like Empire and Scream Queens," Fox International channels President Hernan Lopez said, according to Deadline.

"We can't wait to roll out these incredibly exciting series to fans around the world," Lopez continued. "The viewers we serve every day are driving the success of a show in its premiere window and all the way through its lifecycle."

The next season of Empire, which is scheduled to feature famous guest stars like Mariah Carey and Vivica A. Fox, premieres Sept. 23. The new Scream Queens -- starring Emma Roberts and Ariana Grande -- airs the next day, Sept. 24.
