Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is set to develop and star in a half-hour comedy for FX based on the music scene in Atlanta, Georgia. The news follows recent concern amongst fans about Glover's decreased presence on NBC's hit sitcom Community. Glover will write, executive-produce and play the lead role in the upcoming comedy, which is still in development with FX. The show tentatively titled Atlanta will revolve around the hip-hop scene in the city where Glover grew up. Glover - the renaissance man with a steady rap career as Childish Gambino - reportedly chose to work with FX because of their willingness to accommodate his touring schedule. With so many big names in the Atlanta music scene, it will be interesting to see who else ends up onscreen with Glover.
