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.
