According to Deadline, Internet star Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, creator of The Bernie Mac Show, have teamed up to co-write a comedy series for HBO.

The project focuses on the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African-American woman. These are also themes Rae has tackled in her successful webseries, The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl. Wilmore will executive produce with 3 Arts, which manages both him and Rae, while Rae will co-executive produce.
