Issa Rae

HBO Max has ordered the unscripted series Sweet Life: Los Angeles from Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Issa Rae (Insecure, A Black Lady Sketch Show), set to debut this summer.

Sweet Life: Los Angeles gives an honest and unique look into what it means to be young, Black, and in constant pursuit of one’s dreams in the heart of South Los Angeles. The series follows a group of young, strong-willed, ambitious Black friends showcasing their relatable, authentic and sometimes stumbling mid-20s moments as they embrace the joy and struggles of love and family, while building their careers as tastemakers and influencers in the city where they grew up.

Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family, HBO Max said, “We are thrilled to partner with Issa Rae on this fun, dynamic series about a real group of friends and their unique, yet intertwined experiences in South Los Angeles, which has a one-of-a-kind culture that deserves a spotlight all its own.”

Rae adds, “We’re so proud to present a grounded and fun slice of young Black LA life. We hope the HBO Max audience will relate to and fall in love with this group of friends as much as we have.”
