Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino aka Troy from Community aka Lena Dunham's black boyfriend for, like, two episodes of Girls after the show was criticized for a lack of diversity is getting his own half-hour comedy on FX.

Glover is set to write, executive produce, and star in a comedy set against Atlanta's music scene tentatively (and creatively) titled Atlanta.

I hear several networks were interested in Atlanta but, in addition to the FX comedy brand, Glover also was attracted by the network’s willingness to accommodate his music touring schedule. Glover is free and clear to topline Atlanta as he is no longer a regular on Community and is set to appear in five of the 13 episodes of the cult NBC comedy’s upcoming fifth season. [Deadline]

Glover also recently released a YouTube video teasing something... vaguely positive? Right now, you're probably asking yourself, "Is Danielle Fishel in this teaser trailer?"

The answer is "yes." The answer is most definitely "yes."
