Looks like singer/actress Queen Latifah 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.
If 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.
