Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino aka Troy Barnes has been given a pilot order.
It’ll feature Glover being funny and rapping, combining Glover’s two great loves.
Atlanta tells the story of two cousins rising in the Atlanta rap scene. Glover will star as Earnest “Earn” Marks, a college dropout who rediscovers his love for rap when his estranged cousin hits it big in the industry.
Glover will write and star in the show.
And it will be for FXX, which as we all know, kills it.
But we’ve still got no word on his participation in Community season 6.
Or the movie.
I want Glover to be happy and successful, but I also want Troy Barnes back goddamnit. I hate being torn.
Whatever happens, Donald, I want the best for you. You just do you, man.
