Donald Glover’s FX comedy series “Atlanta” has released its first official trailer.
Glover stars in and executive produces the show, which centers on his character Earn and Alfred Miles, Earn’s cousin, who are both trying to make names for themselves in the Atlanta rap scene.
He noted at the Television Critic Association press tour, “The thesis with the show was kind of to show people how it felt to be black.”
“What was important to me was that this show was personal and had a specific take, because that’s all you can really ask for from a show nowadays, is having a specific point of view on something,” he continued.
Tonally the comedy-drama will be dark, a necessary aspect for the type of story Glover plans to tell.
Atlanta will premiere Sept. 6th.
