Issa Rae Develops HBO 90s Drama With ‘The Turner House’ Author Angela Flournoy

Issa Rae keeps killing it. Not only is her comedy Insecure set to start a third season on HBO, the lovefest between Rae and HBO continues. According to Deadline, word is, she is developing and will executive produce a drama for HBO that speaks to the chaotic times that defined Los Angeles in the early 1990s and how it impacted an African-American family.

Rae, teams up with National Book Award finalist and The Turner House author Angela Flournoy, Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry at 3 Arts and Montrel McKay at Apex Content Venture, who will executive produce as well.

“I’m so thrilled to be working with Angela,” Rae told Deadline. “I was a huge fan of The Turner House and we feel so lucky to bring her beautiful storytelling to HBO.”

For now, the show in development is without a name.  But according to Deadline, it revolves around the marriage of Sheryl and Jackson, an “envelope bounds-pushing real estate agent, and the latter a conflicted LAPD anti-gang task force recruit.”  Their work lives will surely provide plenty of fodder for material and their home life is likely to be lively, with a teenage daughter and son. Expect Rae to bring it on, to keep it real, just as she always does.
