UPDATED with additional details: I’ve learned that FX has put in development Brightmoor, an animated comedy executive produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs.
Created and written by King Of The Hill alum Chip Hall and rising Detroit comedian Chris Powell aka Comedian CP, Brightmoor is described as South Park set in inner-city Detroit. It revolves around the African American pupils at Brightmoor Elementary.
Combs will executive produce through his Revolt Films banner with Sarah Snedeker overseeing and serving as producer. Underground’s Trevor Engelson, and Five All In The Fifth’s Doug Banker also executive produce. Hall and CP will also produce. FX had no comment.
FX has been looking to find a second hit animated series to join Archer. Its previous efforts have included Unsupervised and Chozen.
Hall’s credits also include Blue Mountain State. Comedian CP recently made his acting debut on Fox smash Empire.
Combs is repped by CAA, LBI, and Jonathan Gardner of Cohen and Gardner; CP is repped by LBI and Morris Yorn.
