Deadline in reporting that former Community actor Donald Glover will be starring in his own series tentatively entitled Atlanta.

Reportedly, Glover will write, executive produce and star in the half-hour musical comedy show which is based on the Atlanta music scene. Apparently the actor is a native of the city and has been performing as an hip-hip artist under the stage name Childish Gambino.

Atlanta  was shopped around to several networks including NBC before FX decided to pick up the project. Although Glover is no longer a regular on Community,  he  will appear in five of the 13 episodes of the upcoming  fifth season.

You may remember him as one of Lena Dunham’s lovers in the HBO breakout series, Girls.

Kudos to Glover and looking forward to the new gig!
