Donald Glover Comedy Atlanta Teases Launch Date in Backwards New Promo

Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) is heading to Atlanta this September.

FX on Thursday released a visually interesting new teaser for the semi-autobiographical series, which finds the two-time Grammy nominee playing Earnest “Earn” Marks, a college dropout who rediscovers his love for rap when his cousin (Vice Principals‘ Brian Tyree Henry) hits it big in the industry.

As Earn also attempts to make a name for himself, opposing views on art-versus-commerce, success and race arise. Keith Stanfield (Selma) and newcomer Zazie Beetz co-star.

Glover’s highly anticipated Community follow-up was first announced all the way back in December 2014; FX commissioned a 10-episode first season last October.

Are you looking forward to Atlanta? Back it up and watch the teaser above.
