The first trailer for YouTube star Issa Rae’s HBO Comedy Insecure has finally arrived and it looks awesome. Rae is known for her YouTube hit series The Mis-Adventures Awkward Black Girl (which I highly recommend if you haven’t seen it) and has been working on this new show for a while. At first the news seemed bad as Insecure had been stuck development hell but with the new trailer arriving today, the 8 episode first season of the series is a go and will air on HBO hopefully by the end of the year. You can watch the trailer below:
This fall, something extraordinary new is coming to HBO. Watch the half-hour comedy series Insecure, starring Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce, that looks at the friendship, experiences and tribulations of two black women. Created and executive produced by Issa Rae, this eight-episode series is also executive produced by Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Beck, Jonathan Berry, and Larry Wilmore as a consultant.
