Issa Rae is reportedly collaborating with Larry Wilmore on a HBO comedy series.

The show will have a premise similar to her hit webseries “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.”

Rae will star in the series as well.

From Deadline:

The project focuses on the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African-American woman. These are also themes Rae has tackled in her successful webseries, The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl. Wilmore will executive produce with 3 Arts, which manages both him and Rae, while Rae will co-executive produce.

Rae, recently named to Forbes’ “30 under 30” list, is writing a memoir/collection of personal essays to be published by HarperCollins. Last season, she penned a comedy script for ABC and Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland.
