FX Hits the Derrty South in New Rap Comedy “Atlanta”

If you were a fan of NBC’s Community then you will happy happy to know that Donald Glover will be making his return to television. Donald Glover will be serving as actor, writer, and executive producer alongside Paul Sims and Dianne McGunigle in the upcoming FX is original television show Atlanta.

Atlanta will center around “…two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families.

“Earn Marks” (Donald Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground.

“Alfred Marks” (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life.

“Darius” (Lakeith Lee Stanfield) is Alfred’s right-hand man and visionary. “Vanessa” (Zazie Beetz) is Earn’s best friend and the mother of Earn’s daughter.”

After ordering the pilot, directed by Hiro Murai, FX decided to order 10 half hour episodes for this freshman comedy. Atlanta will premiere on September 6th at 10 p.m.

Here’s the most recent teaser for the show. Again the tone is set  with amazing music and another visual, like the backwards walking of the first few teasers, that I thnk slightly hints to the seperation that the characters may have from their surroundings thus (lmao who uses thus) motivating them to make it out of Atlanta (Hmmm did I just fall upon an imortant story element?)

Tell me what you think of the teaser.
