Everyone has been a little “insecure” at times, depending on the situation or time of age. No matter, we all seem to get through it and move right along to a place of security. Well, that’s must of us.
HBO has released the official trailer for its upcoming comedy series INSECURE, executive produced by and starring Issa Rae. Created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, the comedy series INSECURE launches its eight-episode season SUNDAY, OCT. 9 (10:30–11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
The show explores the black female experience in an unclichéd and authentic way. Modern-day black women are usually portrayed as strong, confident and “flawless.” But Issa and Molly are definitely not “killing it.” These best friends must deal with their own real-life flaws as they attempt to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.
Over the course of the season, Issa attempts to figure out what she wants out of life and how to take control of it, while fumbling her way through this journey. Molly, a corporate attorney who appears to have everything together professionally, struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life.
Meanwhile, Issa’s boyfriend, Lawrence (Jay Ellis), who has fallen victim to complacency, works to get his own act together. Frieda (Lisa Joyce), Issa’s overeager white co-worker, whose enthusiasm is both annoying and endearing, is at the crux of Issa’s racial frustrations at work.
The eight episode series is also executive produced by Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Beck, Jonathan Berry, and Larry Wilmore as a consultant.
The comedy series stars Rae as Issa and Yvonne Orji as Molly on the show, along with Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce.
