Golden Globe winner Donald Glover has really been starting off the new year in a good way. After winning two awards at the Golden Globes earlier this week for his hit show “Atlanta”, Glover has now signed a production deal with FX which will give him the chance to develop more shows for the network.
“Donald is a remarkable artist, effortlessly shifting from actor to writer, producer, director and musician to create one amazing project after another,” FX president of original programming and FX Productions Nick Grad said. “Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city. We’re proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television.”
The only bad news is that Atlanta won’t return for season two until 2018.
The only downside to Donald’s new deal, however: Atlanta season two won’t be out until 2018 (he’s also busy working on the new Star Wars film, remember).
