A one-hour, women written and produced horror anthology series has gotten the greenlight at The CW reports Deadline.
Drew Barrymore And Nancy Juvonen’s production company Flower Films is behind the series, which is called Black Rose Anthology.
The pilot is penned by Jill Blotevogel, former co-showrunner for MTV’s Scream: The TV Series.
The show will feature a laundry list of human fears including jealousy, repression, paranoia, insanity, sexual obsession, and survival, but from a female perspective.
Blotevogel is taking on the executive producing role with Jamie Denenberg & Kevin Abrams of Alpine Labs.
This estrogen-fueled series is somewhat of a breakthrough in the horror industry, it is a male dominated genre. This may also be a jumping-off point for ladies trying to break into horror.
With Black Rose Anthology the CW continues filling this void in addition to their shows The Vampire Diaries and iZombie.
Earlier this year, the genre got an all-female boost with the movie XX, another anthology, this time a movie, in which females dominated the screen.
No word yet on when Black Rose Anthology will premiere.
