'Chozen' White Gay Rapper Animated Comedy Headed To TV
Chozen, an animated comedy centered around a gay white rapper, is making its way to FX's new comedy network FXX!
(We wonder if they brought in Cazwell as a consultant??)
According to Deadline:
Chozen was written by from up-and-coming scribe Grant Dekernion, former writer’s assistant on McBride, Hill and Green’s HBO series Eastbound & Down, which was canceled today. Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) will voice the lead character in the comedy, about a gay white rapper fresh out of prison with a new message and new skills, which he will use in his quest for redemption and domination. Dekernion will write and rap the songs for the lead character of the series, which he is executive producing with McBride, Hill, Green as well as Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Prods. (Archer) for FX Prods. “Chozen is an outrageous and ballsy comedy, but it’s also a very smart examination of the rap culture,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX Networks and FX Prods.
Joining Dekernion on the voice cast are McBride, Hannibal Buress, Michael Pena, Nick Swardson, Kathryn Hahn, and Method Man.
FXX launches Sept. 2; Chozen scheduled for 2014. Think you'll be checking it out, Instincters?
And seriously, they should think about that Cazwell cameo.
