Danny McBride Is Making an Animated Series for FX

The FX network just bought a new animated comedy pilot produced by Danny McBride and his frequent co-conspirators Jody Hill and David Gordon Green, Deadline reports. FX is searching for a companion series to its animated hit Archer, and this could be it. The potential series, entitled Chosen, has been in development since February and will likely feature McBride in a supporting voice role. Chosen was created by Grant Dekernion, a former writer's assistant on McBride, Hill, and Green's HBO series Eastbound & Down. Dekernion would voice the lead character on Chosen, a rapper who's just been released from jail and is looking for redemption. So, take a look at that, aspiring TV writers. There's hope for Eastbound & Down writer's assistants everywhere.
