Diddy To Produce Animated Series

Sean “Diddy” Combs is set to produce an animated comedy for FX titled Brightmoor. The series is currently in development.

Created and written by King of Hill alum Chip Powell, the show will focus on young African-American students who attend Brightmoor Elementary School, located in inner-city Detroit. Rising Detroit comedian Chris Powell will co-write the series.

According to Deadline, 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 will also executive produce.

While the show is in its developmental phase, there has been chatter about whether or not it will be similar to other animated comedy series like, The Boondocks.
