FX Orders Donald Glover’s ‘Atlanta’ to Series


Donald Glover is officially headed to FX for a brand new comedy. The network announced today that it’s picked up the half-hour comedy Atlanta for a 10-episode debut season, and Glover will star and executive produce. FX ordered the pilot of the show last year, which centers on “two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene” and also stars Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Lee Stanfield, and Zazie Beetz. Atlanta will debut on FX sometime next year.
