Donald Glover’s comedy series Atlanta has landed at FX with a 10-episode series order.
The half-hour comedy will premiere sometime in 2016 and stars Donald as one half of a cousin duo hoping to find success in the Atlanta rap scene.
FX network executive Nick Grad released the following statement about Atlanta:
“‘Atlanta’ draws on Donald’s considerable talents as a musician, actor and writer to give us something unique. The story is made all the more powerful by the great cast and the contributions of Donald’s fellow executive producer Paul Simms and director Hiro Murai.”
Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Lee Stanfield and Zazie Beetz will also star in Atlanta.
