It seems like a long time coming, but the FX series “Atlanta” is finally set to premiere this fall – September 6th. The show is written, executive produced and starred in by Donald Glover, better known to music fans as Childish Gambino.
The show Atlanta follows the life of two Atlanta cousins who have different views on music and how to capitalize on it.
The main character, Earnest “Earn” Marks is a college dropout who returns to Atlanta to find that his estranged cousin Paperboy is a local rap star.
I’m all in on the show for a few reasons, one being this amazing trailer you can view below.

Second, Glover has shown himself to be a pretty darn good writer, actor and creator in precious endeavors. The show seems both parts comedic and dramatic, something Glover has done well throughout his career.
September 6th can’t come fast enough.
