Donald Glover Developing Semi-Autobiographical Comedy Series for NBC
Community star Donald Glover is a busy man these days. Not only is he a star of the popular NBC comedy series, but he is also gaining a following in the hip-hop world as Childish Gambino. Furthermore, Glover has made numerous television appearances and has landed several film roles. And now it is being reported by TV Guide that the multi-talented Glover is in the process of developing a comedy series based partly on his own life.
Glover will reportedly star in the series, which has been granted a put-pilot deal from NBC, meaning the company will lose money should the show end up being abandoned. The show will be loosely based on Glover’s life.
Glover has already signed on to the fourth season of Community and is clearly being enrolled to fill the gap that will be left when The Office closes its doors for the final time after this season.
Be sure to tune into NBC on Oct. 19 for the season four premiere of Community.
