Lena Waithe is dealing with another tv series based upon a funny she composed in 2009 about a queer black girl’s maturing.

It took an entire 9 years to obtain the story made, however the program, entitled Twenties, has actually landed a pilot order at TBS, partially off the success of Waithe’s standout Showtime series The Chi, which just recently got a 2nd season(Winning an Emmy for Master of None might have assisted, too.)

According to Deadline, Twenties“follows the adventures of a queer black girl, Hattie, and her two straight best friends, Marie, and Nia, who spend most of their days talking shit and chasing their dreams. It’s a show about friendship, finding love, and messing everything up along the way.”

For a concept of exactly what the series may appear like, see Waithe’s perfectly informed Master of None episode, which concentrated on her character Denise and her household’s approval of her sexuality. “I always wanted to tell a story where a queer black woman was the protagonist,” Waithe stated in a declaration. “Queer black characters have been the sidekick for long enough; it’s time for us to finally take the lead.”
