Issa Rae has landed TWO new shows for HBO.
The first, called ‘Him Or Her,’ “chronicles the dating life of a bisexual black man and the distinctly different worlds and relationships he finds himself in.”
The second, ‘Sweet Life,’ “is a coming of age tale of well-heeled teens growing up” in the Black Beverly Hills — aka Windsor Hills — in Los Angeles.”
Along with ex-Daily Show writer and Emmy-winner Travon Free, Rae will executive produce Him or Her. 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’s ColorCreative.TV partner Deniese Davis will also EP the comedy along with 3 Arts with Full Frontal writer Free penning the series.
Set in the Black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills, Sweet Life is a coming of age tale of the well-heeled teens growing up in the LA neighborhood. Co-created by Rae and Scandal producer Raamla Mohamed, the duo will pen the one-hour drama. Both Mohamed and Rae are EPs on Sweet Life, along with 3 Arts.
Issa is a busy woman. Congrats!
