      Regina King Developing Black Supernatural Drama "Slay" for The CW

      It looks like The CW wants in on the Regina King business. The Oscar and Emmy winner is producing, Slay, a series that is in development at the network. The project is from CBS Television Studios, written by Julian Johnson. Pam Veasey is supervising.

      The potential series would focus on Carson Jones,  "a bold, witty teenager with afro puffs, leather boots, seventies cool, and – thanks to her mother’s ancient African bloodline – supernatural gifts and the responsibility to use them to protect Virginia’s Historic Triangle (one of the most haunted areas in the country) from the forces of darkness."

      King and her sister, Reina King, will executive produce through their Royal Ties Productions banner. Veasey is also an executive producer with Johnson as a co-executive producer.

      Slay is the latest collaboration between Veasey and King. Veasey wrote the ABC pilot  The Finest, starring Tisha Campbell and Amirah Vann. King directed it and she and Veasey both executive produced. The project was not picked up to series.

      King, who just won an Emmy for Watchmen, has a lot of Oscar buzz for her feature directorial debut, One Night in Miami.

          Once again, Halloween is just around the corner, so I thought it'd be fun to bring this classic back given how successful last year's edition was. This year, however, since we're literally living in a horror movie, I decided to switch it up and tailor the theme to one of HB's favorite things to discuss: women. So like last year, below is a list of 31 vacant slots. It's up to the Heartbreakers to decide which of their favorite horror movie scream queens we'll see battle it out for the Hurt or Heal crown. Per Wikipedia, a "scream queen" is defined as such:
          But rather than the actresses responsible for these legendary portrayals, we'll be focusing on these female characters (i.e. Ellen Ripley, Nancy Thompson, Laurie Strode). So for your selection, be sure to choose any primary female character in any horror movie/TV series (we will not be including children's horror/family Halloween movies/series here, strictly classic horror movies/series). So with that said, please help decide our list below (also be sure to indicate the character name and the year the movie/TV series was released for clarity). Each member is only allowed to add one movie to the list every fifteen minutes until it's filled. Once it's filled, Heal or Hurt rules shall begin.
