That Rap Comedy Project from Donald Glover Finally Got a Pilot Order at FX

(via Deadline)

A couple of TV seasons ago, it was announced that Donald Glover was developing a music industry centric comedy series at FX.

Nothing was heard about the project for awhile, but, luckily, FX has ordered a pilot of Glover’s “Atlanta” this week. It’ll focus on the rap scene in Atlanta, GA and the crazed life that goes with it.

If this goes to series, it’ll be fun to compare Atlanta and Empire on Fox
