Just a few short days after winning not only one but two Golden Globes for Donald Glover’s original FX series Atlanta, the network has signed him to an exclusive production deal. With this new deal set in place, Glover will not only continue to write, direct and star in Atlanta, but he will also develop new shows for the network and their affiliates.

Says Nick Grad, FX’s president of original programming:

“Donald is a remarkable artist, effortlessly shifting from actor to writer, producer, director and musician to create one amazing project after another. Atlanta was just the beginning, the breakout comedy of the year and a series revered as much for its originality as its honest look at the experience of being aspiring, young and black in that legendary city. We’re proud to partner with Donald in an overall deal that will allow him to continue turning his creative vision into incredible television.”

That’s so awesome! Congratulations Donald!
