Seriously: stop everything you’re doing and watch the brilliant pilot for HBO’s new “Insecure.” Insecure focuses on the awkward experiences and racy tribulations of a modern day African-American woman through the eyes of Issa Dee, played by “The Adventures of an Awkward Black Girl” fame Issa Rae. I watched it last night and it’s the most excited I’ve felt about watching a contemporary series since Fargo Season 2 (Kirsten Dunst was robbed! I’ll never let it go so get use to it.)
Check it out:
The pilot managed to be rich, vibrant, funny, and real all at the same time thanks to the comedic genius of jackee-of-all-trades, Rae.
The series opens with Issa in a classroom (wearing a power blazer that literally is the definition of #goals) where she is illustrating the many benefits for volunteering and choosing a career in the non-profit sector – namely, the place she is employed at called, “We Got Y’all.” Hilarity ensues, as we discover Issa’s social circle: her couch potato boyfriend (another dreamy blazer):
Her best friend, Molly (whom I’m now obsessed with):
And how the pair couldn’t be more different. Molly is a successful lawyer but can’t find love.
So on Molly’s birthday the two have a girl’s night on the town:
And well…you just need to watch it because it’s brilliant!
WATCH the trailer:
It premieres October 9th at 10:30 on HBO.
