The announcement about Donald Glover’s departure from Community was supposedly to focus on his musical side project, Childish Gambino. While the musical mention was correct, there’s still TV in the comedian’s future. It was announced today that Glover will bring a new TV music-themed comedy to FX where he will be serve as executive producer and writer.
The show’s current working title is Atlanta, a place near to Glover’s heart since he was raised right outside of the ATL. The show will be a music-themed comedy. While other networks were interested in the show, it has been reported that Glover was interested in the FX comedy brand but also liked how accommodating they network will be about his touring schedule. We’ll keep you updated on the whereabouts and goofabouts of both Childish Gambino and the show’s progress.
This is also the moment where we make an
awesome pun about moving from Greendale to Atlanta… and there it is.
