FX’s new animated series, Chozen, was going to be on FXX but has received an upgrade/promotion/transfer to the mothership cable channel for its launch on Jan. 13, 2014.

The series stars Bobby Moynihan as a gay white rapper reclaiming his life and career after a prison term. The rest of the voice cast includes Hannibal Buress, Michael Pena, Nick Swardson, Kathryn Hahn, and Method Man. In two new promo videos, the show literally brings the animation to life as we see Moynihan, Swardson and Method Man for real, alongside some animated effects. Roll the clips!

And for a look at the actual series, please put your headphones on for this NSFW red-band trailer. Enjoy!
