Lena Waithe is continuing her relationship with Showtime and will serve as executive producer of a comedy pilot called How to Make Love to a Black Woman (Who May Be Working Through Some S–t), according to TV Line.

The show, developed by writer Cassalina “Cathy” Kisakye, is a half-hour anthology series that tells “stories about connection and rejection that explore our most harrowing — and harrowingly comic — sexual secrets.”

“Cathy’s script is haunting, funny, and extremely vulnerable — it’s the kind of script that doesn’t come around very often,” Waithe said in a statement to TV Line. “I’m honored that Cathy trusts me with such a special project. I can’t wait for the world to see it.”

The Emmy Award winner has a first-look deal with the premium cable channel. She created and executive-produces the drama The Chi. Kisakye serves as a writer on the series.

“With How to Make Love, I’m thrilled to tell stories about the women I know, who are complicated, passionate, resilient and relatable,” Kisakye said. “Thank you to Lena and the entire team at Showtime for believing in this project.”
