Atlanta, FX’s upcoming half-hour comedy created by Donald Glover of Community and Childish Gambino fame, debuts in September. Part of the recent boom of post-Empire hip-hop TV, the show stars Glover as Earnest “Earn” Marks, who returns to his Atlanta hometown and becomes drawn into the local music scene by Paperboy, his cousin who has become a successful rapper. The cast also includes Brian Tyree Henry and Keith Stanfield, who played Snoop Dogg in Straight Outta Compton. The series’ first official trailer has just arrived, and it’s partially soundtracked by Tame Impala’s “New Person, Same Old Mistakes.” Watch below.
Atlanta premieres 9/6 on FX.
