Lena Waithe, writer and producer of “Dear White People,” has just inked a deal to write a pilot script for BET based on her popular YouTube series “Twenties.”

Debuted last August, “Twenties” focuses on the experiences of a few twentysomething black women trying to find their voice and place in society.

“We want to be entertaining, but we also want to make people think and not just sit back mindlessly,” Waithe said. “We really want them to sit up and pay attention,” Waithe tells Variety.

The show will be produced by Flavor Unit.

Congrats Lena!

    I watched an episode of this and I liked it. It’s great how people can work hard on something, put it on the web and then move to tv!
