Issa Rae is #WINNING! Not only does she have Insecure on HBO, but she has landed two new shows on the network!

via Love B. Scott

The first, called ‘Him Or Her,’ “chronicles the dating life of a bisexual black man and the distinctly different worlds and relationships he finds himself in.”

The second, ‘Sweet Life,’ “is a coming of age tale of well-heeled teens growing up” in the Black Beverly Hills — aka Windsor Hills — in Los Angeles.

Along with ex-Daily Show writer and Emmy-winner Travon Free, Rae will executive produce Him or Her. The single camera half-hour chronicles the dating life of a bisexual black man and the distinctly different worlds and relationships he finds himself in. Rae’s ColorCreative.TV partner Deniese Davis will also EP the comedy along with 3 Arts with Full Frontal writer Free penning the series.

Set in the Black Beverly Hills of Windsor Hills, Sweet Life is a coming of age tale of the well-heeled teens growing up in the LA neighborhood. Co-created by Rae and Scandal producer Raamla Mohamed, the duo will pen the one-hour drama. Both Mohamed and Rae are EPs on Sweet Life, along with 3 Arts.

This is HUGE! We have not seen a Black Female screenwriter make moves this big since Shonda Rhimes’ TGIT with Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How To Get Away With Murder. Both of Issa’s shows sound amazing. Him or Her is specifically interesting to us, especially since the main character is African-American. Her second show reminds us of the now defunct reality series Baldwin Hills which aired on BET in the early 2000s.

What do you guys think of Issa’s new series are you here for them or feeling a little “Insecure”–pun intended. We will keep you posted as more news becomes available! Congrats again Issa!

Tatiana Masleny cast as “She-Hulk” in Disney+ series

The project is just one of a handful of anticipated series Marvel Studios is working on for Disney+, with The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki all in production and set to bow in the next year.

Maslany also becomes the latest female talent to lead a Marvel project following in the footsteps of Brie Larson in Captain Marvel and Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming Black Widow movie. Marvel head Kevin Feige has made it his mission to diversify the MCU and this latest addition to the universe does just that.

Best known for her Emmy-winning role in Orphan Black, Maslany is coming off her highly-lauded role in HBO’s Perry Mason opposite Matthew Rhys. On the film side she has been seen in the Lionsgate pic Stronger and Destroyer. She appeared on Broadway opposite Bryan Cranston and Tony Goldwyn in 2018’s Network.

she-hulk

She-Hulk is the first cousin of Bruce Banner, better known as The Incredible Hulk. In the comics, her origins lie in an accident where she was horribly injured and an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin caused her to transform into an eight foot tall, statuesque female version of the Hulk endowed with all of his amazing abilities. She has also been a long running member of both the Fantastic Four and The Avengers.

However, unlike The Hulk she retains her intelligence and her strength does not increase dramatically with rage. She also exhibits the ability to “break the fourth wall,” or talk directly to the audience because she is aware she is a comic book character.

We think Tatiana will be a great Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk and are really glad more superheroes are coming to the MCU. We are not sure what major villain will mark Phase 4 for Marvel, but now there are two Hulks for them to deal with! “SHE-HULK SMASH!”

A self-proclaimed “pitbull in a skirt” — an epithet better suited to her tomboyish early years than now — Eve was barely out of her teens when she had her first No. 1 album in 1999.
