Donald Glover to Create, Star in FX Comedy Series Based on Atlanta Music Scene
Though he will no longer be a regular on Community, Donald Glover has been keeping busy: last month, he revealed a new Childish Gambino track, teased an upcoming project and signed on to act in the horror film Reawakening. If those announcements weren’t enough, he will soon helm his own comedy pilot.
Glover is attached to write, executive produce and star in a 30-minute comedy series that is currently in development at FX. According to Deadline, the show is tentatively titled Atlanta and will focus on the Atlanta music scene, a backdrop Glover knows first-hand. The actor grew up in Atlanta and has cultivated a successful music career under his moniker, Childish Gambino.
No further news on Atlanta has been released, as the show is still in the early stages of development.
