If you didn't know before, you'll definitely know now. Issa Rae is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to developing shows that folks want to watch! Issa Rae started off on YouTube, with her hit web series "The MisAdventures of an Awkward Black Girl", and was picked up by HBO to produce, and star in, the hit show "Insecure". Viewers were so taken with the show, boosting HBO subscriptions, that the cable network has offered her TWO new opportunities!
"Along with ex-Daily Show writer and Emmy-winner Travon Free, Rae will executive produce Him or Her. The single camera half-hour chronicles the dating life of a bisexual black man and the distinctly different worlds and relationships he finds himself in. Rae’s ColorCreative.TV partner Deniese Davis will also EP the comedy along with 3 Arts with Full Frontal writer Free penning the series."
"Set in the Black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills, Sweet Life is a coming of age tale of the well-heeled teens growing up in the LA neighborhood. Co-created by Rae and Scandalproducer Raamla Mohamed, the duo will pen the one-hour drama."
Issa Rae definitely has a full plate and it's perfect for someone whose goal it was to eat! The third season of "Insecure" is also set to premiere in 2018!
