Hopefully you caught Donald Glover’s send-off on “Geothermal Escapism”, the latest episode of NBC’s comedy series Community and the last time we’ll see Glover on the show this season. As we reported last year, Glover struck a deal with NBC and Sony Pictures Television that would have him starring in only five episodes of Community so he could take time off to focus on his music career. While Childish Gambino might be Glover’s passion project of the moment, he hasn’t left television behind completely as he’s attached to develop an FX comedy series set within the Atlanta music scene, tentatively titled Atlanta. To get a sample of Glover’s writing and directing work as Childish Gambino, hit the jump to watch his short film, “Chicken and Futility”.
