Issa Rae and Project Greenlight are highlighting the underrepresented. Deadline reports the Insecure creator and digital studio have picked up a new series called Minimum Wage.
From writers Rebecca Hu, Arpita Kumar, and Maya Houston, the anthology comedy “centers around five unique employees who work at a run-down fast food restaurant in LA’s Koreatown as they try desperately to improve its business in addition to their personal lives.”
Project Greenlight has already ordered six episodes of Minimum Wage.
From EP Issa Rae:
I’m so proud of the writing team behind Minimum Wage. It is the beautiful product of collaboration, creativity and inclusion. We’re so happy to have partnered with Project Greenlight Digital Studios to find, out of over 2,000 submissions, these dynamic women writers.”
