Issa Rae Productions is looking to partner with content creators who have 2 – 3 episodes of a shot and edited web series. The web series can be either scripted or un-scripted; however, it must be your own material.

Rae has been dedicated to increasing the visibility of minorities in entertainment for quite some time.  In 2014, Rae and her team at ColorCreative TV introduced three new half-hour television pilots by underrepresented talent into the TV landscape by giving them the opportunity to showcase their work on her site:  The three pilots, ‘Bleach,’ ‘Words With Girls,’ and ‘So Jaded,’ are online now and can be found HERE. Most recently, Rae and her company ColorCreative TV joined forces with Project Greenlight Digital Studios to hold a contest titled The New Normal for under-represented, minority writers.

“This could be complete bull, but I would say that 40% of my time is spent producing and working with other writers of color, and the other 60% is developing and working on my own stuff.” – Issa Rae
