A new trailer for Atlanta, Donald Glover’s new FX show, is up! Glover is the writer/producer/director/actor/one-can-assume-composer on the show – it’s really his baby and it’ll be exciting to finally see it on the (small) screen.
A couple things are interesting here: instead of being strictly autobiographical, Glover seems to be playing against-type as the family man looking on as a cousin suddenly hits it big. Glover is a pretty introspective artist, and reversing these roles could be an interesting way for him to examine his own journey and still very young fame.
Atlanta premieres Sept 6 on FX.
