COMEDY SERIES "INSECURE," CREATED BY AND STARRING ISSA RAE, DEBUTS OCT. 9, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

Modern-day black women are usually portrayed as strong, confident and "flawless." But Issa and Molly are definitely not "killing it." These best friends must deal with their own real-life flaws as they attempt to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.

Created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, the comedy series INSECURE launches its eight-episode season SUNDAY, OCT. 9 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Rae stars as Issa and Yvonne Orji stars as Molly on the show, which explores the black female experience in an unclichéd and authentic way.

Over the course of the season, Issa attempts to figure out what she wants out of life and how to take control of it, while fumbling her way through this journey. Molly, a corporate attorney who appears to have everything together professionally, struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life.

Meanwhile, Issa's boyfriend, Lawrence (Jay Ellis), who has fallen victim to complacency, works to get his own act together. Frieda (Lisa Joyce), Issa's overeager white co-worker, whose enthusiasm is both annoying and endearing, is at the crux of Issa's racial frustrations at work. Shot in and around South Los Angeles, INSECURE incorporates the music of both indie and established artists of color, and touches on a variety of social and racial issues that relate to the contemporary black experience.

Issa Rae wrote the New York Times bestseller "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl," which was published in 2015. Her web content has garnered more than 25 million views and over 200,000 subscribers on YouTube. In addition to making the Forbes 30 Under 30 list twice and winning the 2012 Shorty Award for Best Web Show for her hit series "Awkward Black Girl," she has worked on web content for Pharrell Williams, Tracey Edmonds and numerous others.

INSECURE was created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore; executive produced by Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry. Larry Wilmore serves as a consultant.
