Donald Glover finesse FX to pick up Atlanta
Actor/rapper/writer/ and comedian Donald Glover who also goes by the rap moniker Childish Gambino is a modern-day renaissance man. The rapper from Stone Mountain, Ga has evolved from putting out mixtapes to being a co-star on a NBC hit show to creating his own hit series Atlanta that airs on FX.
The show Atlanta is a hit show with only one season under its belt. The shows’ creator, writer, producer, and actor of the series Donald Glover recently sat down with The New Yorker on how he got FX to acquire his show.
