Issa Rae just wrapped up a very successful second season of Insecure in September. While we wait for the third season to arrive, it looks like there's going to be more Issa-produced content on the way. The Golden Globe nominee is working on a drama for HBO with author Angela Flournoy about Los Angeles in the ‘90s.


According to Deadline Hollywood, the series will be centered around a black couple, Sheryl and Jackson, and their family. Sheryl is a “bounds-pushing real estate agent,” while Jackson is “a conflicted LAPD anti-gang task force recruit.”

Flournoy is writing the project, while Rae serves as an executive producer. “I’m so thrilled to be working with Angela,” Rae told Deadline. “I was a huge fan of The Turner House and we feel so lucky to bring her beautiful storytelling to HBO.”

There's no word yet on a title or release date for the series, so keep your eyes out for more details.
