Donald Glover’s FX Pilot ‘Atlanta’ Adds More Leads

Things seem to be just peachy for Donald Glover’s FX pilot “Atlanta.”

FX Networks and FX Productions’ presidents of original programming Nick Grad and Eric Schrier have announced that Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Lee Stanfield and Zazie Beetz have been cast in the pilot set in the world of the rap industry.

Atlanta” follows cousins Earnest “Earn” Marks (Glover) and Alfred Miles (Henry), who are attempting to break through the city’s rap scene — if their opposing views on art versus commerce, success, and race don’t get in the way. Stanfield plays Darius, Alfred’s oddly talented right-hand man and musical collaborator. Beetz plays Van, a pragmatist caught in a complicated relationship with Earn on account of their daughter.

Glover created and wrote the pilot. He is exec producing along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment. Music video director Hiro Murai, whose credits include some of Glover’s videos, will helm the pilot.

Glover is represented by Greg Cavic at UTA, Lev Ginsburg of Ginsburg Daniels, and McGunigle. Henry is represented by Paul Hilepo of Hartig-Hilepo Agency and Jennifer Wiley-Stockton of JWS Entertainment. Stanfield is represented by Jennifer Patredis at Innovative, Colin Stark, and Lev Ginsburg of Ginsburg Daniels. Beetz is represented by Gersh.

“Atlanta,” which hails from FX Productions, begins filming at the end of July in — where else? — Atlanta.
