Supernatural Thriller ‘Slay’ Being Developed For The CW

A horror series with a supernatural twist is on its way to The CW–the latest entry in the network’s fantasy lineup.

The new series–Slay–is written by Julian Johnson, with Emmy and Oscar Award winner Regina King and her sister Reina on board as executive producers, according to Deadline.

The show, according to the official synopsis, follows a bold teenage girl, Carson Jones, with “afro puffs, leather boots and ’70s cool” who has “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.”

Slay–from CBS Studios–also has Pam Veasey (CSINY) and Johnson serving as executive producers on the series.

The series will reunite King and Veasey, who formed the director-writer team on the ABC drama pilot The Finest in 2018. That show dealt with the adventures of five African-American sisters who all served in the NYPD.

King, who recently won her fourth Emmy Award for HBO’s Watchmen, made her feature film directorial debut on the well-received One Night in Miami.

No timetable for the series has been announced yet, so keep reading Horror News Network for updates on Slay on The CW.
