Issa Rae’s Culinary Web Series Inks Deal With Aspire TV

Issa Rae’s headed back to the small screen, but this time she’ll be behind the camera.

Everything Issa Rae touches turns to gold. After securing a third season for her HBO series Insecure, pitching an epic all-Black 90210 remake, landing a lead role in the upcoming film, The Hate You Give and being honored at this year’s Black Girls Rock! , it’s clear that the budding writer and actor has been scoring win after win. Keeping up in the spirit of her recent triumphs, Issa Rae can celebrate once again as her Butter + Brown culinary web series heads to the small screen.

Aspire TV recently announced that they’ll be airing the first season of the hit cooking show this October.
