Now that audiences have a fresh look at Donald Glover dancing his way through Magic Mike XXL this weekend, FX has officially set production on the former Community star’s new rap series Atlanta. The full cast list for Glover’s new project has arrived, along with a hose of new details about the main characters.
It’s been a good long while since ‘Community’ star Donald Glover was announced to develop an FX comedy based on the Atlanta rap scene, but ‘Atlanta’ is here at last. The cable network has officially ordered a pilot episode for Glover’s new series, releasing a few new plot details as well.
Well, this is an odd play for the Trade Federation. Just weeks after 'Community' fans had their hearts broken to learn that Donald Glover would take a reduced role in season 5 to focus on his music career as "Childish Gambino," Glover has been announced to return to TV to write, executive producer and star in his own music-themed FX comedy, 'Atlanta.' Cue Troy crying face!
