Issa Rae has finally gotten the big break she deserves with a half-hour comedy, “I Hate L.A. Dudes,” which has been sold to ABC. The show will be executive produced by Shondaland, Shonda Rhimes’ production company. Issa Rae will write and produce.

If you’re over the moon excited about this pairing, you’re not the only one. The interwebs were excited about a potential collaboration between Rae and Rhimes after the “Awkward Black Girl” creator tweeted a picture of the two.

The new comedy, “I Hate L.A. Dudes,” promises to give fans exactly what they hoped for. According to Rae:

I Hate L.A. Dudes centers on an aspiring journalist, new to Los Angeles, who becomes the lone female voice on a budding, male-driven Internet talk show, while learning to decode the often humiliating and exasperating rules of the LA dating scene.

We first gave readers a peek at the web series version of this show in July, and can’t wait to see it come to life on the small screen. We’ll share details about the show as more information comes available.

In the meantime, tell us: will you watch “I Hate L.A. Dudes,” Clutchettes and Gents?

    I’m also a huge fan of Roomie Lover Friends at the moment! Recently unsubbed from Black and Sexy’s channel (I know Issa Rae is co-producing the show with them), because as much as I WANT to like The Couple and The Number, they feel a bit *too* unscripted and meandering. Maybe I’m weird for not wanting to see the mundane aspects of a guy and girls’ relationship, or a guy and girl struggling to cope with a the girl’s promiscuous past, but everyone else seems to adore it, so I feel like the odd one out.

    I think I can feel Issa’s presence on RLF, though; it’s much quicker-paced, and there’s more humor. I definitely prefer it!

    The Couple “couple” are really, really annoying. I just can’t with that series. They are like people I would HATE in real life.

  • Avril

    Agreed! Wish it was ABG and not this but maybe it’ll still have the flavor. I’m hoping. I’ll watch it to support Issa if nothing else.
