Has someone been reading Big Dipper's diaries?

The kid sister of FX, new basic cable network FXX — which will launch Sept. 2 — has ordered its first original series, Chozen, from the creative minds behind HBO's Eastbound & Down and FX's Archer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the animated comedy is "about a gay white rapper recently released from prison who uses his new survival skills in his quest for redemption." SNL's Bobby Moynihan will voice the lead character of Chozen; Grant Dekernion, who will write and executive produce the program, will also rap the show's original songs.

"Chozen is an outrageous and ballsy comedy, but it’s also a very smart examination of the rap culture,” says Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX Networks and FX Prods.

FX shows like It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will cozy up to Chozen on FXX in the fall.
