The series is tentatively titled Atlanta and will focus on the Atlanta music scene, two things Glover knows quite a bit about, considering he's from Atlanta and has a music career as hip-hop artist Childish Gambino. Apparently FX is willing to work around Glover's music touring schedule, while other networks were not.
It was a bit surprising to learn earlier this summer that Glover wanted to spend less time on Community—what is Abed going to do?—but this news sheds some light on the whole situation. Of course, it was also surprising to learn that NBC had renewed the comedy for Season 5 last spring after the series's worst season to date. Add to that the surprising return of creator and showrunner Dan Harmon and you've got one wacky, ongoing surprise party over there at NBC.
Are you excited too see Glover do something new? Or are you furiously writing strongly worded letters to the actor for splitting up Troybed?
