FX and Danny McBride to Develop a New Cartoon

According to, FX has just placed an order for a new pilot for the animated comedy titled Chosen, which came from comedian Danny McBride and his partners Jody Hill and David Gordon Green. Chosen was written by Grant Dekernion, who used to be writer’s assistant on Hill, McBride, and Green’s HBO series Eastbound & Down. Dekernion will also be voicing the lead character.

Chosen tells the story of a rapper who has been released from prison “with a new message and new skills – which he will use in his quest for redemption and domination.” Dekernion, McBride, Hill and Green executive produce with Floyd County Prods, the animation studio behind FX’s Archer, for FX Prods.

McBride, Dekernion, Green, Hill, and FX also collaborated earlier this year on the development of another animated comedy about a man out of prison. The series has McBride and Hill attached as executive producers.
