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".
