Issa Rae has ridden the success of her creation Insecure to a cult following and to a Golden Globe nomination, and now she's at work on another new show for HBO.

According to Deadline, everyone's favorite "awkward black girl" is set to executive produce a currently-untitled drama about a black family living in Los Angeles during the 1990s. The family consists of a real estate agent named Sheryl, her husband Jackson who is an LAPD anti-gang task force recruit, and their teenage children Ebony and Les.

Angela Flournoy, whose acclaimed debut novel The Turner House which was a finalist for the National Book Award, will write and executive produce the project.

"I'm so thrilled to be working with Angela," Rae said. "I was a huge fan of The Turner House and we feel so lucky to bring her beautiful storytelling to HBO."

Other executive producers include Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry at 3 Arts and Montrel McKay at Apex Content Ventures.
