Houston Has Eye On Vivian Carter TeleFlick

LOS ANGELES (UltimateTV.com) - Whitney Houston's BrownHouse Entertainment is looking to develop a new telefilm based on the life of Vee-Jay record label founder, Vivian Carter.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie is tentatively titled either "The Vivian Carter Story" or "Nothing Can Stop Me Now" --named after a Gene Chandler song. The movie will air on Lifetime.

Carter and her husband James Bracken took out a pawn-shop loan to start the Vee-Jay label in 1953, which went on to great success, signing artists such as Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, John Lee Hooker and little-known (at the time) British pop group the Beatles, who later left Vee-Jay for Capitol Records.
