Issa Rae, creator of the YouTube hit webseries The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, has officially been given word by HBO Comedy to move forward to develop her comedy pilot, Insecure.

Penned by Rae and Larry Wilmore from “The Nightly Show,” Insecure addresses awkward experiences and difficulties of a modern day African-American woman.

Insecure, which is reported to be similarly themed to The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, will star Rae. Both Wilmore and Rae will serve as producers.

    I hope they give her the creative freedom she was looking for.

    I hope they don’t change it too much from ABG. They really should’ve kept the name, but I guess they’re trying to appeal to a broader audience. Good luck, Issa, girl.
