Welcome to the sweet life! There isn’t much Issa Rae can’t do when it comes to acting and producing. This summer Rae and HBO Max are giving us a glimpse on the life of some young adults in South Los Angeles.

Per the logline, Sweet Life: Los Angeles gives an honest and unique look into what it means to be young, Black, and in constant pursuit of one’s dreams in the heart of South Los Angeles. The series follows a group of young, strong-willed, ambitious Black friends showcasing their relatable, authentic and sometimes stumbling mid-20s moments as they embrace the joy and struggles of love and family, while building their careers as tastemakers and influencers in the city where they grew up.


This series will be a positive spin on how some black residents try to map out their life and career paths. The show comes as a part of her deal with Hoorae media label at WarnerMedia.

“We are thrilled to partner with Issa Rae on this fun, dynamic series about a real group of friends and their unique, yet intertwined experiences in South Los Angeles, which has a one-of-a-kind culture that deserves a spotlight all its own,” said Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family, HBO Max said Deadline.

Issa Rae’s hit show “Insecure” is set to return for it’s fifth and final season.
