FXX—FX's attempt to court a younger audience by turning into a hardcore porn channel so gradually you'll hardly notice (they're only one X away!)—has announced its first original series. Created by Danny McBride, Chozen stars SNL's Bobby Moynihan as the voice of a gay, white rapper who has recently been released from prison, and will be scripted by soon-to-be-available Eastbound and Down writer Grant Dekernion. The rest of the voice cast includes stand-up comedy fixtures Hannibal Buress, Michael Pena, Nick Swardson, Kathryn Hahn, and sitcom veteran Method Man. FXX launches in September; Chozen is slated to air in early 2014.
