FXX Picks Up Danny McBride's Animated Comedy, Chozen
Danny McBride has added another project to his plate for the upcoming fall season.
According to a press release, FX’s new network, FXX, has ordered Chozen, an animated comedy about a gay white rapper.
The first new show to be picked up for the channel, it revolves around a rapper fresh out of prison who “uses his new survival skills in his quest for redemption.” Danny McBride and Rough House Pictures, the team behind Eastbound & Down, Floyd County Productions (Archer) and Grant Dekernion will all executive produce, with Dekernion also writing the script.
Saturday Night Live’s Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress, Kathryn Hahn, Michael Pena, Danny McBride and Nick Swardson will voice the characters.
Set to launch Sept. 2, FXX will target a younger audience than FX and host existing comedies, such as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League, as well as original programs. The network will be more comedy-focused than FX, but will eventually expand to include dramas.
