It was recently announced that She’s Gotta Have It star, DeWanda Wise, will star in the Showtime original series Three Women. Wise will play Sloane, a glamorous entrepreneur in a committed open marriage until two sexy new strangers threaten their aspirational love story. The series also stars Emmy and SAG Award nominee Shailene Woodley (Big Little Lies) and is based on the blockbuster nonfiction No. 1 bestseller by Lisa Taddeo, who is also a writer on the series. The announcement was made today by Amy Israel, Executive Vice President, Scripted Programming, Showtime Networks Inc.

Three Women is an intimate, haunting portrayal of American female desire, in which three women are on a crash course to radically overturn their lives. In addition to Sloane, there is Lina, a homemaker in suburban Indiana who is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming and transforms her life, and Maggie, a student in North Dakota who weathers an intense storm after accusing her married English teacher of an inappropriate relationship. Gia(Woodley), a writer grieving the loss of her family, persuades each of these three spectacular “ordinary” women to tell her their stories, and her relationships with them change the course of her life forever. Principal photography is set to begin in the fall.

Three Women is executive produced by Lisa Taddeo, showrunner Laura Eason, Kathy Ciric and Emmy Rossum. Louise Friedberg has signed on to direct the first two episodes, which she will also executive produce.

Wise has previously starred as Nola Darling in the television adaptation of She’s Gotta Have It, and her other TV credits include The Twilight Zone, Shots Fired, Underground and Boardwalk Empire. In film, Wise most recently appeared in Fatherhood and has also starred in Someone Great, The Weekend, Firelight and How to Tell You’re a Douchebag. Wise will make her blockbuster debut in an undisclosed leading role in Jurassic World: Dominion, set for release in the summer of 2022.
