Danny McBride’s Chozen Picked Up by FXX


Cable newcomer FXX has recently picked up its first-ever original series, titled Chozen, which is an animated comedy series from the group behind Eastboudn & Down and Archer. The series is written and executive produced by Grant Dekernion, who will also rap the songs featured in the series.

Joining Dekernion as executive producers will be Danny McBride, Jody Hill, and David Gordon Green of Rough House Pictures, who are the same team behind HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Animation will be handled by Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Productions (Archer).

Chozen is an animated comedy that focuses on a gay white rapper who was recently released from prison. He uses his new survival skills in his quest for redemption. While Dekernion will be providing the songs, the character’s voice will be provided by Bobby Moynihan.

“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, newly elevated president of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions. “Chozen is an outrageous and ballsy comedy, but it’s also a very smart examination of the rap culture.”
