FX Expanding Push Into Animation, Orders Pilot From 'Eastbound & Down's' Danny McBride Deadline
FX has ordered a pilot for an animated comedy from "Eastbound & Down" co-creator and star Danny McBride and his partners Jody Hill and David Gordon Green, reports Deadline.com.
The project, called “Chosen,” was written by Grant Dekernion, a former writer's assistant on "Eastbound & Down," who will also voice the lead character in the comedy.
The project is about a rapper who comes out of prison with a new message, which he wants to use to gain redemption and domination, the story says.
FX wants to expand its animation programming and add on to the success of the animated show "Archer," which recently was renewed for a fourth season.
