According to Deadline, Insecure creator and star Issa Rae has been cast opposite Bill Hader in ‘Empress Of Serenity,’ the directorial debut of Me And Earl And The Dying Girl author and screenwriter Jesse Andrews.

Hader will play Sheldon, an animal rights lawyer who is shocked by the news of his mother’s death, and finds unexpected friendship after he’s coerced by his estranged father to go on a 45-day cruise. Rae plays Michelle, a reclusive kindred spirit in the cabin next door who becomes both the aid and the obstacle in Sheldon’s plan to win back his ex-wife.

Andrews wrote the script which is loosely inspired by a David Foster Wallace novel and is being produced by Stephen Chbosky alongside Mr. Mudd’s Lianne Halfon and Russell Smith. Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe will executive produce alongside Mr. Mudd’s John Malkovich. Erin Westerman is overseeing for Good Universe.

Rae is the star of HBO’s Insecure, which will return for its second season on Sunday, July 23. She was also a 2016 Golden Globe nominee (Best Actress in a Comedy Series).
