HBO Orders Comedy Pilot From Awkward Black Girl Creator Issa Rae
The “Awkward Black Girl” creator will write and star in the pilot of “Insecure” alongside Larry Whitmore.
Rae will star in the pilot, titled "Insecure," and will co-write the series with comedian Larry Wilmore. The next hurdle will be to get the pilot ordered to series, but with the massive success of her original series and Wilmore making strides with The Nightly Show, the pieces are aligned for what could be a breakthrough in premium cable programming.
