Donald Glover's Rap Comedy Atlanta Gets Pilot Order from FX Networks

Donald Glover Pilot

FX Networks has given a pilot order to Donald Glover‘s Atlanta, which combines two of the Community star’s greatest loves: making us laugh and rapping our faces off.

Atlanta tells the story of two cousins rising in the Atlanta rap scene. Glover will star as Earnest “Earn” Marks, a college dropout who rediscovers his love for rap when his estranged cousin hits it big in the industry.

In addition to writing and starring in the pilot, Glover will also serve as executive producer, alongside Paul Simms (Flight of the Conchords) and Dianne McGunigle.

    I love Donald Glover and Childish Gambino, but in watching interviews with him lately, he seems so full of himself. It’s been really disappointing to see him become this self obsessed talent.

    I’m a fan of his comedy and his rapping skills. So yeah i will definitely give this a shot if it makes it to air

    This article actually has the words “rapping our faces off” in it. Like for real. : O

    I like to laugh. But I have no interest in rap. I’ll have to pass.

    I thought he left Community to work on/promote his recent album? Guess that wasn’t the ONLY reason after all…. would rather have him back on than watch whatever mess this future canceled series will be.
