Issa Rae is the creator and star of the most popular urban web-series online today, The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl. I traveled to Los Angeles, California to get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at season 2 and discuss what the future holds for Issa Rae. As she continues to achieve her goals as a professional in Hollywood, Issa is also taking on new responsibilities as a role model and shares how her newfound fame has influenced others.
Awkward Black Girl’s success has led her to a development deal with Shonda Rhimes (Gray’s Anatomy, Scandal) and ABC for a new show entitled “I Hate LA Dudes”. Jabari Presents was created to inspire youth culture to chase their dreams by showcasing people who are living theirs. This is a story of executing an idea. This is Jabari Presents: Issa Rae, The Awkward Black Girl.
