‘Insecure’ star and creator Issa Rae to make big screen debut in comedy, ‘Empress of Serenity’

DEBUT: Issa Rae

ISSA RAE, the star and creator of HBO series Insecure, will make her big screen debut in comedy, Empress of Serenity.

Empress of Serenity centres on a man (Bill Hader) whose elaborate plan to win back his ex-wife is upended when he is guilted into a monthlong cruise with his widowed father.

Issa Rae will play Michelle, a reclusive kindred spirit in the cabin next door who becomes both aid and obstacle to Sheldon’s plan.

Rae was nominated for a Golden Globe for her series Insecure, which she created, wrote, produced and starred in. She first received mainstream attention from her award-winning web series, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.

Her first book, a collection of essays under the same title, is a New York Times best-seller. Rae is repped by UTA, 3 Arts Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson.
