FX has released the first red-band trailer for its new animated series Chozen, and it looks like it will make a fine companion to the excellent Archer. Created by Grant Dekernion and executive produced by the same folks behind Archer and Eastbound and Down, the series revolves around a gay white rapper fresh out of prison who sets out for redemption and to claim his rightful position as the world’s top rap artist. Bobby Moynihan voices the lead character to great effect, and this trailer highlights a swell sense of humor that should connect with fans of Archer and Eastbound.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The series also features the voices of Hannibal Buress, Michael Pena, Nick Swardson, Kathryn Hahn, and Method Man. Chozen will premiere on FX January 13th.
