Issa Rae Set To Premiere Three TV Pilots At 2014 Urbanworld Film Festival

September 11, 2014  |  


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.

BET reports, the pilots are independently produced and half-hour comedy series. Here is a description of Rae’s pilots via her site:

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.

So Jaded
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, Rae is in the process of developing a network television show with her mentor Rhimes.

Congratulations Issa!
