Despite critical acclaim, Issa Rae’s hit series Insecure didn’t garner any Emmy attention. But the show creator/writer was happy as long as the winners were Black. “I’m rooting for everybody black”, Issa said at the red carpet. “I am!”
Issa also credits the authenticity of the show’s story line for bringing the show success, and making it a must-watch on Sunday nights.
You have so many people behind the camera and behind the scenes that are committed to telling authentic, real stories that haven’t been seen on television before and you have audiences embracing it because they’re tired of seeing the same old, same old stories. So it’s just a pleasure to be among such great company.
