Chris Rock Is Producing a New FX Series Starring W. Kamau Bell

Chris Rock’s newest project is a half-hour weekly series for FX premiering this August, starring comedian W. Kamau Bell. Based on Bell’s one-man show The W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour, the show will feature Bell riffing on current events and pop culture in a late-night format that should involve other comedians as well. According to Bell, Rock slipped backstage after watching Bell Curve and started giving him career advice while “dressed in all black like he was in the Matrix,” which is a story almost as wonderful as this news.
