The new trailer for Donald Glover's Atlanta is equal parts drama and comedy

New, 16 comments

The first teaser for Donald Glover’s Atlanta didn’t give away much about what it would be about, as much as it gave off a neat vibe. With just a couple of weeks before the show premieres, a new trailer has dropped which has gotten us really interested in watching.

From this trailer, it certainly looks as though it’s going to be a nice blend of comedy and drama. Speaking at the Television Critics Awards, Glover noted that, "The thesis with the show was kind of to show people how it felt to be black."

Announced last year, Atlanta is about Earn (played by Glover), a loner who returns home to Atlanta, where he gets caught up in the local rap scene when his cousin, Alfred Miles (Brian Tyee Henry) becomes the next big thing.

Atlanta will premiere on FX on September 6th.
