The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Lena Waithe is creating an new drama series about open relationships for Amazon.
Waithe just finished the pilot script and the working title for the series is “Open.”
"I’ve never been in an open marriage, but it’s fascinating to me," Waithe tells THR. "We live in a world where, if I told you I cheated on my wife, you would be like, “Yeah, that’s the way it goes.” But if I told you that I’m in an open marriage, it would be as if I told you I’m joining the Church of Scientology."
Waithe also goes on to say that society had a conservative view of marriage and that we should “reevaluate what marriage looks like for us as a country.”
Waithe signed a deal with Amazon in 2019. Waithe and her production company, Hillman Grad Productions, are currently working on the horror anthology, Them: Covenant.
