    Issa Rae, Laura Dern to Battle Over Cabbage Patch Dolls in HBO Limited Show

    Issa Rae and Laura Dern will take a page out of 1980s pop culture for HBO.

    Rae and Dern have signed on to star and exec produce limited series The Dolls for the premium cable network. The series, which is in development, will recount the aftermath of the Christmas Eve riots within two small Arkansas towns in 1983 in which riots erupted over Cabbage Patch Dolls. The limited series, which will be written by Insecure trio Rae, Laura Kittrell and Amy Aniobi, will explore class, race, privilege and what it takes to be a "good mother.

    The Cabbage Patch riots were a series of fights at retail stores that erupted following the breakout demand for the doll brand that was one of the most coveted pop culture items of the 1980s. (The toy line remains in production today.

    They befriended each other through various HBO events/parties etc. Issa presented Laura with her Emmy in 2017 and they were sitting next to each other at the Golden Globes. I love the pairing!
