Donald Glover Is Developing An Atlanta Music Scene-Set Series For FX That He'll Also Star In

Donald Glover has inked a deal to write, produce and star in a half-hour comedy pilot for FX, which will be titled Atlanta.

The semi-autobiographical project will be set against the backdrop of the Atlanta music scene (Glover grew up in Atlanta), and will incorporate his Childish Gambino music skills.

This comes on the heels of news that Glover will exit Community in the fifth episode of the NBC comedy’s upcoming fifth season.

The busy multihyphenate was recently cast in Lionsgate’s upcoming horror thriller Reawakening.

Up next for him is the feature comedy The To Do List.

We last saw him in Lena Dunham’s hit HBO series, Girls

Atlanta is doing it! Hopefully he will focus on using a lot of local Southern talent instead of pulling people from outside the city. Congrats!
