Amanda de Cadenet Newsmagazine Pilot Set for Showtime


Showtime has ordered a new pilot, tentatively titled Now What with Amanda de Cadenet, for a weekly half-hour newsmagazine format created and hosted by the titular feminist personality.

Now What with Amanda de Cadenet will touch on current social, sexual, cultural and political issues in the U.S. Inuka Bacote (Eastsiders) and Danielle Oexmann (Vice Does America) are on board as co-showrunners. The series is being made by Matador Content and Cutler Productions, with de Cadenet, Tamyka Smith, Jane Cha Cutler, R.J. Cutler, Todd Lubin, Jason Weinberg and Jay Peterson serving as executive producers.

“It’s a historically significant time to be a woman—and an incredibly divisive time in our culture,” stated de Cadenet. “People are really struggling to navigate the new and ever-evolving social paradigms that are currently taking shape. I’m excited and ready to explore the nuanced conversations and heated debates that all genders are having, both online and in private, to make sense of how the hell we got here, and most importantly: how do we move forward in the most effective way?”
