Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore*Issa Rae is definitely a woman who knows how to create opportunities for herself.

It was not so long ago that she developed her now successful webseries, “The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl,” and now she is teaming up with Larry Wilmore, a correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” to co-write a comedy series project for HBO, in which she is set to star, reports Deadline.

You go girl!

Awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African-American woman will be the focus for the series. Themes that Rae is very comfortable with; seeing as they are tackled in her webseries. Wilmore will executive produce with 3 Arts, which manages both him and Rae, while Rae will co-executive produce.

Rae was recently named to Forbes’ “30 under 30” list. She is also writing a memoir, a collection of personal essays to be published by HarperCollins.
