Issa Rae Teams Up with Shonda Rhimes for TV Series
We were so excited to hear that The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl‘s Issa Rae has landed a deal with THE Shonda Rhimes for a TV comedy series entitled, I Hate L.A. Dudes slated for ABC. According to Deadline:
I Hate L.A. Dudes centers on an aspiring journalist, new to Los Angeles, who becomes the lone female voice on a budding, male-driven Internet talk show, while learning to decode the often humiliating and exasperating rules of the LA dating scene. Rae, repped by UTA, 3 Arts and John Meigs, is writing/co-executive producing. Expanding into comedy has been a major priority for Shondaland, which established its brand in drama.
We are so excited for Issa and happy to see that Shonda is lifting up other talented females through her production company, ShondaLand!
