FX will be teaming up with Xbox One to offer an exclusive sneak peek at upcoming animated comedy Chozen. Beginning today, the episode can be watched through the FXNOW app, which allows customers of AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cablevision, Suddenlink, and WOW watch full episodes of FX, FXX, and FXM programs anytime.
Chozen tells the story of gay white rapper Chozen, who has recently been released from prison. However, instead of coming out into the free world angry at his incarceration or looking to seek revenge on those responsible for his conviction, he’s hell-bent on spreading a positive message through his music and redeem himself for the sins he committed before going to prison. While on a quest to become the world’s top rapper, he uses the worldview wrought from time behind bars to poke at stereotypes associated with rap music.
Chozen features voice work from the likes of Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Michael Peña (Shooter), Hannibal Buress (The Eric Andre Show), Nick Swardson (Just Go with It), Cliff “Method Man” Smith (How High), and Kathryn Hahn (Parks and Recreation). Tom Brady (Good Vibes, Home Improvement) serves as showrunner, while producers include Grant Dekernion, Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down), Jody Hill (Observe and Report), David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), and Brandon James (This is the End).
The series premiere of Chozen is set to air Monday, January 13th at 10:30 on FX. You can check out the red band trailer for the series here.
