According to Variety, FX picked up a ten episode order for the half-hour comedy, which is reportedly about two cousins trying to make it in rap in the ATL.
"'Atlanta' draws on Donald’s considerable talents as a musician, actor and writer to give us something unique,” Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX and FX Prods, said. “The story is made all the more powerful by the great cast and the contributions of Donald’s fellow executive producer Paul Simms and director Hiro Murai. We can’t wait to for the debut of ‘Atlanta’ next year.”
If the name Hiro Murai rings a bell, it probably should -- and that probably means you're a Childish Gambino fan. Muri has directed a number of Gambino's videos, including "3005" and "Sober."
On Thursday night, after the news was announced, he posted a picture on Instagram of a whiteboard with a schedule related to the new show, plus the caption, "very stoked we get to make more."
We're stoked, too, Hiro.
