WATCH: HBO Unveils New Teaser for Issa Rae Comedy ‘Insecure’

HBO has released a new teaser for the Issa Rae half-hour comedy Insecure that is set to debut on the cable network this fall!

The series will contain themes from Rae’s highly acclaimed web series, The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, which garnered over 20 million views and nearly 200,000 YouTube subscribers. It revolves around the friendship of two modern day black women and their uncomfortable experiences and racy tribulations.

“I don’t think the mainstream media understands people of color are multidimensional. For some reason, there’s an idea that only white people are relatable. I don’t think it’s necessarily racist. But it’s odd, because the people who watch the most television are black women, so we should be represented in more ways.” – Issa Rae

Insecure stars Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Lisa Joyce, Neil Brown, Jr and is created and executive produced by Issa Rae. Prentice Penny (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Melina Matsoukas, (Beyonce’s Formation), Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry will serve as executive producers, and Larry Wilmore will serve as a consultant for the series.
