In addition to his gigs on the NBC show Community and as rapper Childish Gambino, Donald Glover might add sitcom creator to his resume very soon.
TV Guide reports that Glover, a former 30 Rock writer, is developing an NBC comedy series based on his own life. Glover would star in the sitcom, and Matt Hubbard, a fellow 30 Rock writer, is also attached to the series, which is reportedly close to getting a put pilot.
It’s not entirely clear yet how the 28-year-old’s life will work into the plot. Perhaps he’ll go the route of his fellow NBC star Mindy Kaling (The Office), who recently developed and stars in The Mindy Project, premiering this fall on Fox.
The show might draw Community fans, but if Glover leaves his role as Troy on the sitcom, which has reached cult status, viewers might not be as pleased. However, for now, Glover isn’t leaving Community, and the new project would be “in second position.” Fans can see him when the show returns for its fourth season on Friday, Oct. 19, at 8:30/7:30c.
Glover’s hip-hop act Childish Gambino was recently nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video.
