Showtime Greenlights Pilot ‘Now What With Amanda De Cadenet’

Showtime has ordered a new pilot called “Now What With Amanda De Cadenet” (working title), which is a half-hour weekly news-magazine format created and hosted by Amanda de Cadenet (“The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet”). The show takes a thematic approach exploring America’s current social, sexual, cultural and political issues, seen through de Cadenet’s feminist lens. Inuka Bacote (“Eastsiders”), and Danielle Oexmann (“Vice Does America”) will serve as co-showrunners. 

The logline: With society at a crossroads, and conversations once relegated to a “women’s issues” section now front-page, de Cadenet’s ability to connect with diverse audiences offers a unique opportunity to explore these issues across generations, zip codes and genders. Through candid interviews, culturally relevant guests and unexpected insights, “Now What With Amanda De Cadenet” will help viewers understand the present…and get ready for the future.
