Donald Glover To Star In New FX Comedy “Atlanta”


The FX Networks comedy pilot Atlanta has cast its lead actors as production gets underway this month.The show revolves around two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene whose opposing views on art versus commerce, success and race will make their quest anything but easy. 

Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Lee Stanfield and Zazie Beetz will star in the pilot along with Donald Glover, who created and wrote the pilot. Hiro Murai, who will direct it, has directed a number of music videos (Glover’s Childish Gambino: “Sober,” Chet Faker: “Gold” and Earl Sweatshirt: “Chum”) that have been noted for their cinematography. The series has been in the works for over a year, and has finally been given the green light.
