Issa Rae is already winning at life in general, but specifically with her hit HBO show ‘Insecure’ which is currently gearing up for its third season. Well now according to reports from Deadline, the actress has now landed not one, but two new shows for the network. That’s not it, one of the series will be center around solely LGBT characters, specifically bi-sexual men.

Issa Rae’s every growing empire is taking not one but two more steps forward with Him Or Her and Sweet Life, I’ve learned. HBO has picked up the comedy and the drama from the Golden Globe nominated Insecure star and co-creator for development as a part of Rae’s 2016 inked first look producing deal with the premium cabler.

Along with ex-Daily Show writer and Emmy-winner Travon Free, Rae will executive produce Him or Her. The single camera half-hour chronicles the dating life of a bisexual black man and the distinctly different worlds and relationships he finds himself in. Rae’s ColorCreative.TV partner Deniese Davis will also EP the comedy along with 3 Arts with Full Frontal writer Free penning the series.

Set in the Black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills, Sweet Life is a coming of age tale of 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 are EPs on Sweet Life, along with 3 Arts.
Soooo here for both shows! no word on when fans can expect the shows to premiere, but we will be waiting.
