I say it to myself all the time. Issa Rae is #careergoals. 2017 has seen Issa Rae roll out a successful second series of her HBO show, Insecure. Film her first movie. Cameo in not one but two major music videos. Be named as the new face of COVERGIRL and now, we have news that HBO has picked up two shows, a comedy and a drama from the Golden Globe-nominated star.
According to Deadline, comedy series Him Or Her will be “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 will executive produce the show alongside Emmy-winning writer, Travon Free.
The drama, Sweet Life is “a coming of age tale of the well-heeled teens growing up in the LA neighborhood, the Black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills.”
Incredible news for Issa Rae, and really for all of us because everything she touches turns to gold. Welp, we won’t be canceling our HBO subscription anytime soon!
