Showtime Orders Comedy Anthology Pilot from Lena Waithe and Cathy Kisakye

  • Showtime has ordered a pilot for a comedy anthology entitled How to Make Love to a Black Woman (Who May Be Working Through Some Shit).

  • The half-hour project stems from Lena Waithe's first-look deal with the network. She will executive produce along with Cathy Kisakye, who created the concept and will write the pilot.

  • Kisakye has written on both seasons of Waithe's The Chi, which is also on Showtime. 

  • How to Make Love to a Black Woman will be a "collection of multi-part episodes which will include a new collection of characters in an authentic world, telling stories about connection and rejection that explore our most harrowing – and harrowingly comic – sexual secrets".
