Created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore, the comedy series INSECURE launched its eight-episode season this past Sunday. It normally airs at (10:30–11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

The comedy series stars Rae as Issa and Yvonne Orji as Molly on the show, along with Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce.

According to Deadline, Insecure has tallied a total of 1.1 million viewers for its first episode. The series starring Issa Rae was available over the last 2 weeks on HBO Go, HBO Now and HBO On Demand where it drew a combined audience of 601,000 viewers.

The show explores the black female experience in an unclichéd and authentic way. 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.

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.

Prentice Penny is the showrunner of the eight episode series and also serves as the executive producer, along with Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Beck, Jonathan Berry, and Larry Wilmore (as a consultant).
