FXX To Debut New Animated Series About Gay Rapper
FX Networks’ new channel, FXX, is making its debut with a unique animated series under its belt called Chozem, a cartoon comedy about a gay white rapper.
The show, executive produced by Rough House Pictures (Danny McBride, Jordan Hill and David Gordon Green) features the rapper “fresh out of prison with a new message and new skills, which he will use in his quest for redemption and domination.,” according to a release
Wu-Tang member Method Man, comedian Hannibal Buress and Saturday Night Live star Bobby Moynihan will lend their voices to the series with writer/executive producer Grant Dekernion penning and spitting the songs.
“Chozen is an outrageous and ballsy comedy,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX, “but it’s also a very smart examination of the rap culture.”
FXX will go live Sept. 2 with content targeting the 18 to 34 demographic with Chozen slated to premiere early 2014.
