Several websites misreported that Issa’s popular series would be developed by HBO where she and Larry Wilmore would co-write a series about “the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern-day African-American woman,” which is untrue. However, Issa will be working with HBO on a new pilot. “I’m writing a HBO pilot. We just turned that in, so we’re waiting on notes. And I’m always working on a web series,” she told the Huffington Post in November.
