FX Update: Brand X With Russell Brand Cancelled, Danny McBride Cartoon Set for FXX

chozen-300Comedians Russell Brand and Danny McBride both lost and gained series today.

FX is doing a bit of re-Branding by choosing not to order more episodes of the Brit’s late-night talk show Brand X With Russell Brand. However, the actor will remain on board for a scripted, live-action comedy based loosely on his life.

Meanwhile, McBride — whose HBO comedy Eastbound & Down will not return after its upcoming season — is getting animated over on FX’s newly announced offshoot, FXX. McBride is set to produce the animated series Chozen (pictured above), which focuses on a gay, white rapper who is just out of prison.

    As long as it won’t just be a bunch of homophobic and racists jokes the cartoon sounds really promising

    Calling Russell Brand an actor is an insult to actors.
