Issa Rae Set To Premiere Three TV Pilots At 2014 Urbanworld Film Festival
Shonda Rhimes is Issa Rae’s mentor, the creator of the hit “Awkward Black Girl” web series. Therefore it is only right for Rae to be tackling TV with gusto. She will be premiering three television pilots produced by her company ColorCreative.Tv at the 2014 Urbanworld Film Festival.
A dark comedy following the odd couple relationship of a depressed carpet cleaner who’s forced to do clean up jobs for a no-nonsense hitman. Written by Shawn Boxe and directed by Victoria Mahoney.
Words With Girls
A lesbian relationship comedy centered on a group of 20-something, fast-talking, attitude-having LA transplants. Written by Brittani Nichols and directed by Tessa Blake.
A quirky buddy comedy about two best pals navigating love, life and medical marijuana in urban Los Angeles. Written by Syreeta Singleton and directed by Daven Baptiste.
Besides launching ColorCreative.tv, Rae is in the process of developing a network television show with her mentor Rhimes.
