Actress to exec produce talkshow, scripted dramas

Exclusive: Lifetime has inked a multiproject development deal with Demi Moore.

Actress, known for her bigscreen career, is delving into television and will exec produce two scripted dramas and talkshow “The Conversation,” hosted by Brit photographer Amanda de Cadenet.

Cabler has ordered eight episodes of “The Conversation,” which will be produced by de Cadenet. Moore, de Cadenet, Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and David Hillman will exec produce.

“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,” said Lifetime topper Nancy Dubuc. “Innovative, sincere and forthright about her approach to sharing a woman’s point of view on life, Amanda, who created this show, is the perfect host and executive producer for this series.”

Hourlong “The Conversation” is based on de Cadenet’s online series “140Women,” which features chats with women about a variety of topics, including sexuality, body image, career and finances.

” ‘The Conversation’ provides an intimate and inviting environment for women to share their challenges, provide insight into their own personal solutions and hopefully inspire others in the process,” Moore said. “We hope this is a forum where truly anything and everything can be discussed.”

De Cadenet hosted “The Word and Breakfast” at age 14 and then became a renown photog, shooting covers for magazines such as Vanity Fair, Vogue and Rolling Stone.

Moore has previously pacted with Lifetime, as the actress will be directing a segment of cabler’s upcoming original pic “Project Five,” exploring the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives.

There were no details released regarding the two scripted series on tap at Lifetime, where the cabler recently gave a season renewal for reality show “One Born Every Minute.”

Dubuc, who is trying to reverse the ratings slide at Lifetime, gave series order to a pair of femme-friendly cop dramas in February: “Against the Wall” and “Exit 19.”
