The streaming service announced Tuesday at WarnerMedia Day that Banks, Rae and Kaling are developing the shows “DC Super Hero High,” “Rap Sh*t” and “College Girls.”

“These three incredible talents embody the distinct and diverse voices that will give flight to the quality HBO Max brand promise across all audiences,” HBO Max chief content officer Kevin Reilly said in a press release.

“DC Super Hero High” is a half-hour comedy series featuring Banks as executive producer. The show is based on characters from DC Comics and follows a group of students at a boarding school for gifted kids.

“Rap Sh*t” is a half-hour comedy series with Rae, Montrel McKay, Jonathan Berry and Dave Becky as executive producers. Rae will also write the pilot, which centers on a female rap group trying to make it in the music industry.

HBO Max will debut in spring 2020. The streaming service is also developing the “Game of Thrones” prequel “House of the Dragon” and a “Green Lantern”-inspired series.
