Donald Glover, Who Recently Ditched "Community," Has Lined Up a New Comedy Series on FX

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 6, 2013 | Comments ()


You knew there had to be more reason than simply wanting to further explore his musical career as Childish Gambino behind Donald Glover’s decision to leave “Community.” In fact, he has never either confirmed or denied that his musical career was behind that decision. The fact that Glover is now taking a lead role in a comedy sitcom he is set to create, producer, star, and write also suggests that maybe Glover just wanted to do something that required more of him, that allowed him to do other things besides play Troy Barnes.

You can’t fault a guy for wanting more.

The comedy has landed at FX, after several other suitors lost out. We don’t know much about it except for what Deadline has revealed: That it is tentatively entitled “Atlanta,” that it’s a half hour, and that it is set against the backdrop of the Atlanta music scene, something which with Glover is very familiar having grown up in Atlanta.
