The Showtime comedy pilot, How to Make Love to a Black Woman (Who May Be Working Through Some Sh*t) is not moving forward. Deadline announced the news on Tuesday.
The potential series was set to have an anthology format. Kendrick Sampson and Carra Patterson had been cast as leads and Tonya Pinkins, Mario Van Peebles and Amandla Jahava had also been added to the pilot.
The project arrived at the network from its first-look deal with Lena Waithe, who executive produced. It was created by Casallina “Cathy” Kisakye, who wrote the pilot. Rishi Rajan also executive produced and the pilot director was Naima Ramos Chapman.
The description: With each multi-part episode, How to Make Love to a Black Woman unfolds 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.
