Issa Rae has extended her contract with WarnerMedia, accepting a five-year overall deal. The eight-figure deal is exclusive to WarnerMedia for television, including HBO, HBO Max, Warner Bros. Television, and a first-look deal with Warner Bros. Pictures Group New Line and HBO Max for feature films. Rae’s media firm, Hoorae, will work on all the ventures.
Several of the ventures with Issa’s South L.A.-based media company Hoorae are currently in the works for HBO and HBO Max. HBO’s Insecure is currently filming its fifth and final season, and the Emmy-nominated A Black Lady Sketch Show will debut its second season next month. HBO Originals The Vanishing Half, Nice White Parents, and the documentary series Seen and Heard, and the Max Original half-hour comedy Rap Sh*t were previously revealed as new ventures. Hoorae is also collaborating with Mark Phillips on an HBO Max scripted series.
