Issa Rae Coming to a TV Near You

After two years of false starts our favorite Awkward Black Girl Issa Rae has been greenlit by HBO to produce her own television series. Issa and comedian Larry Wilmore are collaborating to bring audiences Insecure, a show that will focus on two modern women of color in America facing everyday awkward situations and race with the humor we expect from Issa and Larry. Following the path of The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl Issa will be playing the main character and Yvonne Orji will be costarring playing her best friend on the show. The show will also star Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce. No date has been set yet, but it is expected to arrive by the end of 2016.
