Chozen Debuts January 13 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on FX
LOS ANGELES, January 6, 2014 – FX Networks is teaming with Xbox One to offer an exclusive sneak peek of the pilot episode of its newest animated comedy, Chozen, through the FXNOW app beginning Monday, January 6. The 13-episode series premieres Monday, January 13 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on FX, following all-new episodes of the critically-acclaimed comedy Archer.
Chozen is an animated comedy about its title character, “Chozen,” a gay white rapper fresh out of prison. Armed with a new message, Chozen is on a quest for redemption and to claim his rightful position as the world’s top rap artist. His music and lyrics take aim at the stereotypes of machismo and misogyny that is synonymous with rap music. And his new world view has been shaped by his time in prison.
The voice cast features Bobby Moynihan, Michael Peña, Hannibal Buress, Nick Swardson, Cliff “Method Man” Smith and Kathryn Hahn. Grant Dekernion, who created Chozen, serves as Writer/Executive Producer of the series, and Tom Brady serves as Executive Producer/Show runner. Danny McBride, Jody Hill, David Gordon Green, and Brandon James from Rough House Pictures (Eastbound & Down) are Executive Producers. Adam Reed and Matt Thompson of Floyd County Productions (Archer) are Executive Producers and their company will animate the series. The series is produced by FX Productions.
The FXNOW app for Xbox One app offers the biggest and best lineup of FX, FXX and FXM’s critically-acclaimed dramas, hit comedies and blockbuster movies within an Xbox One experience that’s unmistakably FX.
