Diddy Is Producing an Urban ‘South Park’ for FX
Sean "Diddy" Combs literally can't stop, won't stop, thinking of ways to expand his empire. Now the hip-hop mogul is working on developing cartoons. Puff is executive producing an animated series titled Brightmoor for the FX network that is being pushed as the urban version of the Comedy Central mainstay, South Park, reports Deadline.
Created and written by Chip Hall and Detroit comedian Chris Powell, the show will be set in the Motor City and center around the Black students at Brightmoor Elementary School. Hall's writing credits include King of the Hill and Blue Mountain State. Powell recently made his acting debut on the hit Fox show, Empire. Puff will executive produce the series through his Revolt Films imprint with Sarah Snedeker serving as the show's producer. If it's anything like South Park, it's sure to be entertaining and controversial.
In addition to money making moves outside of hip-hop, Combs has reportedly gotten back on his producer ish heavy. He recently took to Instagram to announce his beat making return. “Yes the rumors are true,” Diddy wrote. “It’s been a long time since I had been really focused on producing music. My first love. Is the type of love that Will never go away!” He is already working with a number of MCs including Pusha T, The LOX, Kanye West, The Weeknd, A$AP Ferg and singer Cassie. What's next?
