Issa Rae Developing 2 New Shows For HBO
Issa Rae‘s black girl magic won’t let up at HBO.
The Golden Globe nominated “Insecure” star is developing two new shows for the network titled “Him or Her” and “Sweet Life.”
Here’s the scoop via Deadline:
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. Both Mohamed and Rae are EPs on Sweet Life, along with 3 Arts.
Amidst all that and the other projects she has on the go, the very busy and clearly not sleeping Rae will be back for a third season of “Insecure” next year.
Let me find out Frank Ocean‘s song inspired “Sweet Life!”
I’m looking forward to checking out these shows.
