Diddy reportedly producing new animated series set in a Detroit school

Brightmore will air on the FX network

The latest project from rapper, producer and all-round entrepreneur Diddy will see the Bad Boy founder serve as an Executive Producer on the forthcoming US animated series Brightmoor.

That’s according to Deadline reports that claim Diddy – real name Sean Combs – will produce the project through the film division of his digital cable television network, Revolt Films.

Due to air on the FX network, Brightmoor has been developed by King Of The Hill creator Chip Hall and comedian Chris Powell, aka Comedian CP, and will follow a group of African-American students who attend Brightmoor Elementary School.

It looks set to be a busy time for Diddy after last month’s announcement that he will be returning to music production after a mostly barren few years. In an Instagram post, the New Yorker said his comeback would only last for a year, and named Kanye West, The Weeknd, Pusha T, A$AP Ferg, Cassie, The LOX, “and many more” as the artists he would be working with.

“The rumours are true,” Diddy wrote. “It’s been a long time since I had been focused on really producing music, my first love. It’s the type of love that will never go away. So I’ve come back for 12 months only. I’m back behind this board. Real niggas and real music are back in style!”
