Issa Rae: From Awkward Black Girl to Insecure?

Watch out Lena Dunham and the rest of your “Girls.”

We suspect there will be a new sheriff in town, as Issa Rae’s TV project, “Insecure,” just received a pilot order from HBO.

The “Awkward Black Girl” creator may be treading in familiar territory, according to Deadspin, as this show will center on the “awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African-American woman.”  We’re wondering why it can’t just be called ABG, but what do we know!

We at JET are so excited to see our diverse filmmakers making waves.  We’ll stay tuned for its debut and in the meantime, more on this news HERE.
