Issa Rae’s production slate continues to grow now that the Golden Globe nominated star has landed a deal to executive produce two new HBO series called “Him Or Her” and “Sweet Life.”
This all comes after her second successful season of the hit comedy, “Insecure,” which is scheduled for a third season.
The single camera half-hour series, “Him or Her,” will chronicle 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 executive produce the comedy along with 3 Arts with Full Frontal writer Free penning the series.
Her second series, “Sweet Life,” will be set in the Black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills and tell the coming of age tale of the posh teens growing up in the LA neighborhood. Co-created by Rae and “Scandal” producer Raamla Mohamed, the duo will pen the one-hour drama.
Needless to say, 2018 will be yet another big year for the young woman who began her career with the popular web-series, “The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl.”
