Golden Globe nominated Insecure star and co-creator Issa Rae is officially killing the game in every way possible!

HBO has picked up the comedy Him Or Her and drama Sweet Life from the creative powerhouse as a part of Rae’s first look producing deal with the cable network.

Him or Her is a single camera half-hour that revolves around the dating life of a bisexual black man and the distinctly different worlds and relationships he finds himself in. Rae will serve as executive producer of the series alongside her ColorCreative.TV partner Deniese Davis and ex-Daily Show writer and Emmy-winner Travon Free.

Sweet Life is a coming of age tale set in the black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills. The series revolves around 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 will serve as executive producers of this series.

Amidst all that and the other projects she has on the go, the very busy and clearly not sleeping Rae will be back for a third season of Insecure next year.
