Timeless horror tropes from a modern female perspective. 

An all-women team is getting ready to bring horror to the CW. According to Deadline, a new anthology series is being developed for the network and will be written and directed entirely by women.

Black Rose Anthology, produced by Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen's Flower Films company alongside by Jill Blotevogel, the former co-showrunner of MTV's Scream: The TV Series, will be an hour-long anthology series steeped in classic horror themes.

With Blotevogel slated to pen the series pilot, Black Rose will use guilt, jealousy, repression, paranoia, insanity, sexual obsession, and survival to plant seeds of fear in our minds, all with a distinctly female tone.

The team behind Black Rose is amongst good company at the CW, where women-led and centric series find solid audiences. Deadline cites The Vampire Diaries and iZombie as prime examples of the type of popularity shows expressing the female perspective can achieve.
