HBO Orders “Brothers in Atlanta” To Series

(via The Wrap)

The lives behind musicians and music moguls seem to be the order of the day.

Lorne Michaels has lent his name successfully as a producer to the music biz comedy Brothers in Atlanta that follows Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin try to make it in various disciplines of music in Atlanta.

There’s clearly a trend here as FX already has Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll ordered to series and the undeniable beast of a series that is Empire set numerous records in its freshman season.

The addition of Brothers in Atlanta also makes for an interesting quilt of HBO’s comedy line-up as HBO will now have comedies poking fun at Washington D.C., Silicon Valley, and now Atlanta.

Now, all of this has us wondering what’s going on with Donald Glover’s similar sounding series ordered as a pilot at FX.
