We've been anxiously awaiting the first look of Issa Rae's new comedy series Insecure. The show will be premiere on HBO this fall.

The show follows ups and downs in the lives of two Black women, Issa Dee and Molly Carter.

The first episode was directed by Melina Matsoukas (a.k.a. the woman behind Beyoncé's "Formation") and Larry Wilmore is a show consultant.

Yvonne Orji plays Issa's bestfriend Molly and Jay Ellis co-stars as Lawrence, her visually appealing but unemployed boyfriend.

Issa Rae's The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl made waves in 2011 for telling a kind of story that's not often seen.

She teamed up a deal with multimedia mogul Shonda Rhimes in 2012 to a pilot for another series "I Hate LA Dudes," but the show was not picked up.  She released her first book The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl in 2015.

Watch our interview with Issa where she talks about the show and the work she hopes to do.
