American actor, comedian and Community star Donald Glover (aka rapper Childish Gambino) is leaving the NBC college cult comedy for his own project on FX.

It’s been confirmed that master of all entertainment trades is developing a music-themed comedy for FX entitled Atlanta. The half an hour series is set around Atlanta’s music scene (which Glover grew up around) and he will write, produce and play the lead protagonist on the show.

In July, Glover took a step back from Community and is only appearing in five episodes this season. He has also spoken about focusing on his rap career as Childish Gambino.

Check out the Clapping for the wrong reason teaser he released last week featuring Flying Lotus, Chance the Rapper, Trinidad James and more below.
