LOS ANGELES, February 27, 2019 - FX Networks has ordered the first season of the Untitled Lil Dicky series (working title), a half-hour comedy based on the life of rapper and comedian Dave Burd, known best by his stage name Lil Dicky, it was announced today by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions.

The series is centered on a suburban neurotic man in his late twenties who has convinced himself that he's destined to be one of the best rappers of all time. Now he must convince his closest friends, because with their help, he might actually convince the world.

"Not only has Dave Burd cemented his place in the rap community, but he's now poised to take over TV with his infectious comedic sensibility in his own series," said Grad. "We're thrilled to have partnered with an impressive creative team featuring Jeff Schaffer, Saladin Patterson, Kevin Hart, Greg Mottola and Scooter Braun to bring the story of Lil Dicky to TV audiences."

Added Burd, "I'm so thankful for everyone who made this possible, it really is what I've been dreaming about since I was a kid. I love making people laugh, it's my favorite thing ever. And even though I'm still fully in love with and committed to my career as a rapper, I'm excited to write jokes that don't need to rhyme every time. Ugh, that rhymed."

The Untitled Lil Dicky series is co-created by Dave Burd and Jeff Schaffer (The League, Curb Your Enthusiasm), and executive produced by the pair along with Saladin Patterson (Psych, The Big Bang Theory), Kevin Hart and Hartbeat Productions (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, TKO: Total Knock Out, Real Husbands of Hollywood), Greg Mottola (Adventureland, Superbad), Marty Bowen (Mr. Mercedes, Rosewood), Mike Hertz and Scooter Braun (Scorpion), James Shin and Scott Manson of SB Projects.

Riding the commercial success of his hit single "Freaky Friday" - the smash hit with over one billion streams and achieving multi-platinum status in 15+ countries - Dicky has been riding high ever since. His debut album "Professional Rapper" debuted at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 in Comedy, Rap and Independent charts, highlighted with the multi-platinum single "Save Dat Money". And he's just getting started...
