While it’s difficult to pinpoint precisely when it was that Southern hip-hop seeped into the collective consciousness of the rap industry and asserted its dominance, only one crew can lay claim to putting Atlanta on the map: The legendary Dungeon Family.
Hot off the success of Atlanta Season 2 and Childish Gambino’s “This Is America,” FX is locking down director Hiro Murai. The frequent Donald Glover collaborator will soon expand to his own FX series, aiming to develop new TV projects for FX Networks and beyond.
2017 is already half-over, though it seems only yesterday we learned that Donald Glover’s FX Atlanta would join Westworld in delaying its second season to 2018. Glover’s understandably busy in the meantime, but Season 2 production will apparently start next month, as Glover teases his controversial approach.
The nominations are in for the 2017 Emmy Awards and there’s just as much to celebrate as there is to be disappointed about. The 2016-2017 TV season was a huge year for the small screen, reaching the peak-iest of peak TV. It was full of more new series than you could keep track of, diverse casts, and many groundbreaking episodes in both the comedy and drama departments. A brief scan of the major categories may leave you feeling a little bummed over the nominations, with many of the usual suspecting making the cut yet again – can the Emmys even exist without Modern Family or Julia Louis-Dreyfus nods at this point? And critical and fan favorites like The Leftovers, Girls, and Legion were nowhere to be seen in the top categories.
