Donald Glover ‘Atlanta’ pilot green-lit

Great news: Donald Glover is coming back to TV, officially.

Earlier in the year, it was reported he was working on his own show for FX ‘Atlanta’. This weekend, the news drops that FX has green-lit a pilot, which will star and be executive produced by Glover.

His role will be a natural fit for fans of Childish Gambino, the rapper. Via XXL:

The story for the half-hour comedy series will center around two cousins with vastly different lifestyles who are trying to make it in the thriving Atlanta rap scene. Gam will portray the role of Earnest “Earn” Marks, an underachiever who tries his hand at rapping.

Sound excellent. And I’m sure we’ll get some A-level raps from Gambino who I’m sure will wanna blow people away on TV. (Not on social media now, it seems. But hey, maybe he just cleared his Twitter to retweet this?? Haha.)

Anyway, this is me at the news:
