Donald Glover Comedy Atlanta Snags 10-Episode Series Order at FX

FX is making a beeline for Atlanta, handing a 10-episode series order to Donald Glover‘s semi-autobiographical rap-themed comedy series.

Atlanta draws on Donald’s considerable talents as a musician, actor and writer to give us something unique,” FX’s original programming president Nick Grad said in a statement. “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. We can’t wait to for the debut of Atlanta next year.”

Glover penned the pilot and will also serve as an EP on the series, which finds the Community alum playing Earnest “Earn” Marks, a college dropout who rediscovers his love for rap when his estranged cousin (Vice Principals‘ Brian Tyree Henry) hits it big in the industry.

Atlanta also stars Lakeith Lee Stanfield and Zazie Beetz.
