Issa Rae To Produce ‘Rap Sh*t’ Series For HBO Max
The HBO Max streaming service is set to launch in 2020. Several television veterans, such as Issa Rae, will produce programming for the platform. According to Deadline, Rae will lead a half-hour series tentatively titled Rap Sh*t. The show will follow a Miami-based female rap group’s journey in the music industry.
Rae certainly has a solid relationship with HBO executives since her show “Insecure” has had three successful seasons under its belt. And “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” which she executive produces, has been picked up for a second season.
HBO Max will also be home to series by Elizabeth Banks (Scrubs, 30 Rock) and Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project). Kevin Reilly, chief content officer for HBO Max, stated, “These three incredible talents embody the distinct and diverse voices that will give flight to the quality HBO Max brand promise across all audiences.”
