Childish Gambino to Star in Series Pilot About Atlanta Rap Scene
According to Deadline, the potential show is titled 'Atlanta.' The proposed series will star the eclectic rhymer as a budding rapper named Earnest "Earn' Marks who nixed his college pursuits to chase a rap career, shortly after his cousin hits it big as a rapper.
The two cousins also have opposing views about what rap should be, as one believes its more about the money and the other the art. Gambino is also executive producing the pilot along with Dianee MccGunigle and Paul Simms of HBO's 'Girls.'
If the show gets picked up, it'll be on the cable network FX, but no word yet on when the show will officially air.
