HBO Comedy Series Starring Issa Rae in the Works
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.
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.
