While women producing horror may seem like a new thing, for the Two Gay Geeks we have been huge supporters, starting off with the likes of Patricia Chica and her brilliant horror film shorts. Well now it seems that the Hollywood Machine is finally catching up to what we already knew, because the CW will soon be the home of Black Rose Anthology, a horror series written and directed entirely by women. Deadline is reporting that the series will be produced by Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen’s Flower Films, former co-showrunner of MTV’s Scream: The TV Series Jill Blotevogel and CBS TV Studios
The pilot for Black Rose Anthology will be written by Blotevogel and will reportedly “explore some of humanity’s deepest fears from a woman’s unique perspective.” There will be vignettes about “guilt, jealousy, repression, paranoia, insanity, sexual obsession and survival through a modern and distinctly feminine lens.”
Black Rose Anthology will be executive produced by Blotevogel with Jamie Denenberg and Kevin Abrams from Alpine Labs, Barrymore, Juvonen, Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, Nick Phillips, Anthony Masi and Lotti Pharriss Knowles from Flower Films.
Blotevogel was co-executive producer for the Amazon series Patriot. The CW recently ordered a backdoor pilot for a female-centric spinoff of Supernatural called Wayward Sisters focusing on Kim Rhodes‘ Sheriff Jody Mills. Supernatural showrunners Andrew Dabb, Robert Singer, Phil Sgriccia and Robert Berens are set to executive produce Wayward Sisters. Dabb and Berens are set to script the backdoor pilot. Should Wayward Sisters become a full series, it is noted that there are also plans to bring in other familiar Supernatural characters.
Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen’s Flower Films was founded in 1995 and has produced films like Never Been Kissed, Charlie’s Angels, 50 First Dates, Fever Pitch, He’s Just Not That Into You and Freak Show. It’s also produced TV shows like Olive, the Other Reindeer, Tough Love Couples, Charlie’s Angels, Knife Fight and The Santa Clarita Diet, which Barrymore stars in.
