Issa Rae’s Comedy “Insecure” Is Headed To HBO
Our favorite awkward black girl Issa Rae just inked a pretty sweet deal. According to reports, Rae’s comedy “Insecure” will find a new home at HBO.
The 30-minute show (which, we’re sure will be full of real life LOLs and the dramatic not-so-crying face emoji) will star Rae who is also the co-executive producer and writer, along with Comedy Central’s Larry Wilmore who will act as the show’s consultant.
Insecure follows the friendship of two modern day black women and all of their crazy experiences, and racy tribulations. Issa will play Isa Dee alongside Yvonne Orji, Lisa Joyce and Jay Ellis from BET’s “The Game.”
Oriji plays Molly, Issa’s bestie who’s professional life is all together, but her personal life isn’t. Ellis will play Rae’s unemployed and depressed boyfriend who for the past four years has been trying to get his life together, and Joyce plays Issa’s empathetic co-worker.
This should be pretty dope. Congrats to Issa Rae and co.
