This is a day we knew was coming. After the runaway success of Issa Rae’s online series “Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl” it was only a matter of time before her talents would make their way to television.
According to Deadline, Issa Rae will be teaming up with “Bernie Mac Show” creator Larry Wilmore to co-write a comedy series project for HBO, starring Issa. The project is expected to focus on the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African- American woman.
Last season, she penned a comedy script for ABC and Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland and was recently named to Forbes “30 under 30″ list.
