10 Things You Didn’t Know About Insecure’s Issa Rae

I Hate LA Dudes

Before Insecure, Rae was working with Shonda Rhimes, shopping a series called I Hate LA Dudes to ABC. It was somewhat similar to Insecure, but also pretty different. It followed a twenty-something who works for a non-profit by day, but by night, works to be a rapper. Interesting, right? Behind-the-scenes differing visions for the show were the reason it didn’t work.

“It was my first experience working with a network and the studios and I wanted to include all of the studio’s notes and criticism and ultimately it was no longer my vision,” Rae told Chicago magazine. “It showed and they passed on it.”
