Michelle Obama Diaries

Here's the latest in the ever-expanding pool of online content from the Awkward Black Girl. 

On the heels of the U.S. Presidential debates, Issa Rae Productions presents a project taking a guess at what the First Lady is like behind closed doors. Filmed as a mockumentary featuring "never-before-seen-footage," the first installment of The Michelle Obama Diaries was recently released as a pilot, so presumably more episodes are on the way.

The project is executive produced by Rae and Yakira Chambers (who also stars as Mrs. Obama), produced by Chika Chukudebelu, directed by Tani Ikeda, and written by Benjamin Cory Jones and Lena Waithe.

Find the first episode below.

    I wrote a spec episode for the show but I never heard back about whether they liked it or not. I hope they're still in need of writers for the show because I love the idea -- lots of opportunities for candid comedy!

    I love the " make sure they dont get here till 2016". Funny! I'll keep watching.

    It had some cute moments, but I hope future episodes are funnier and focus less on their "relations".
