How to Make Love to a Black Woman pilot ordered at Showtime
Variety brings word that How to Make Love to a Black Woman, a comedy produced by Emmy winner Lena Waithe (The Chi, Master of None), has received a pilot order at Showtime.
Created by Casallina “Cathy” Kisakye (The Chi, Homecoming), the half-hour anthology series tells stories “about connection and rejection that explore our most harrowing — and harrowingly comic — sexual secrets.”
Waithe said: “Cathy’s script is haunting, funny, and extremely vulnerable — it’s the kind of script that doesn’t come around very often. I’m honored that Cathy trusts me with such a special project. I can’t wait for the world to see it.”
“With How to Make Love, I’m thrilled to tell stories about the women I know, who are complicated, passionate, resilient and relatable. Thank you to Lena and the entire team at Showtime for believing in this project,” added Kisakye, whose work focuses on racial identity and sexual politics.
How to Make Love to a Black Woman landed at the network through Waithe’s first-look deal with the network. Kisakye, Waithe, and Rishi Rajani will serve as executive producers.
Waithe is also currently executive producing Boomerang and Twenties
