Looks like the Queen is getting into the TV cop business.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Queen Latifah has made a script deal with CBS for an untitled cop series. The project centers on a street savvy Philadelphia woman who realizes her calling as a homicide detective after a defining moment.
The drama will be penned and executive produced by Charles Murray (V, Castle, Criminal Minds), with Latifah (Single Ladies, Let's Stay Together) executive producing the show through her production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment. Flavor Unit's Shakim Compere and Shelby Stone along with production company Rocklin/Faust's Nicole Rocklin, Blye Faust and Renata Adamidov are attached as executive producers.
If, fortunately, the show makes it on the air, it will join other Latifah-produced TV shows, including VH1's Single Ladies and BET's Let's Stay Together. She is also prepping a daytime talk show with Sony Pictures Television.
