Before "Insecure," Orji wrote a pilot for a web series "First Gen," a sitcom about Joanna - a first generation Nigerian-American who trades in a stable career in medicine for stand-up comedy, and the adventures that ensue when her traditional immigrant parents discover her plans.

The trailer which was released in 2015 went viral and not only earned her an audition for "Insecure," but also the attention of David Oyelowo and Oprah Winfery, who would also executive produce the series.

"Night School" will debut on September 28, 2018.
