Insecure actress Natasha Rothwell signed an overall deal with HBO, Deadline reports.

Rothwell, who plays the hilarious Kelli on the Issa Rae series, was tapped to work on a series for the premium cable channel, in which she is set to executive produce, write and star in.

She celebrated the news on Twitter on Tuesday, saying “dear 2019, I’m coming for you. Love, Natasha #pinchingmyself.”

The actress serves as a producer for Insecure and was upped to a series regular for the show’s second season.

Rothwell was recently in director Greg Berlanti’s LGBT film Love, Simon, which was based on the book Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. She will next appear on the big screen in Patty Jenkins’ highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984.
