FX’s spin-off network FXX has picked up its first animated series from the creative team behind Eastbound & Down and Archer titled Chozen.
Chozen is an animated 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. The series is being produced by FX Productions and will feature the voices of Dekernion, Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Hannibal Buress (Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell), Michael Pena (Gangster Squad), Nick Swardson (Parks and Recreation), Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down), Kathryn Hahn (Anchorman), and Method Man (The Sitter). The executive producers are Grant Dekernion, Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and David Gordon Green.
“It’s great to be in business with Grant, Danny, Jody, David and Rough House and this is the perfect first series order for FXX,” said Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “Chozen is an outrageous and ballsy comedy, but it’s also a very smart examination of the rap culture.”
