Lifetime Networks announced that Lifetime and actress, producer and director Demi Moore have signed a development deal that will bring scripted dramas to the network along with the interview series “The Conversation.” Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Networks, made the announcement.
“The Conversation” is hosted by British photographer and TV personality Amanda de Cadenet. The network said in a press statement that the show will focus on famous women and on topics of importance to women.
“Based on de Cadenet’s popular web series, the hour-long program will feature intimate interviews with high-profile celebrity role models and every day women about a wide variety of topics, including sexuality, body image, career and finances, politics, relationships and human rights,” the network said in the statement.
The original order is for eight episodes of the show, to be produced by decadenet Inc. with de Cadenet and Moore serving as executive producers with Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and David Hillman of Lifetime Television. Andrew Fried (“Iconoclasts”) will co-executive produce.
Moore is also developing and will executive produce two scripted dramas for the network.
Said Dubuc: “Demi is one of the most fascinating people in the world. She is both an icon and a modern woman who plays by her own rules. Not only am I inspired by that, I also am so excited to partner with her.”
