With the final season of her hit series Insecure in the works, Issa Rae is moving on to reality TV.

HBO Max announced Tuesday that the Emmy-nominated actress and writer's next TV project, Sweet Life: Los Angeles, will debut on the streaming service this summer.

The unscripted reality series will give "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," according to the description.

It will follow a group of young 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."

"We're so proud to present a grounded and fun slice of young Black LA life," Rae said in a release. "We hope the HBO Max audience will relate to and fall in love with this group of friends as much as we have."

The competition series will be returning for eight episodes, with Rae serving as a mentor for a group of aspiring female filmmakers.

When asked whether she would ever star in her own show again, as she does in Insecure, Rae replied in the negative.

"Girl, no! I'm never doing this again," she said. "Before you asked that question, I told myself I would never write and be in a show that I created again. It takes up a lot of your life, and I like to do a lot of things."

She added, "I love doing this show. I'm so grateful to be able to do this show. But that's just not really for me."
