Donald Glover is doing his thing right now. On top of filming Spiderman:Homecoming,his highly anticipated show Atlanta is set to debut in a month FX has dropped six brand new teasers to get us pumped.
The show surrounds Glover’s character, Earnest Marks, who, after not succeeding in his artistic career, comes back to ATL. However, to his surprise his cousin Paperboy is now hottest rapper in their city. The show focuses on their clashing views race, success and the sort.
The reason why Glover chose the city of ATL:
“I know it’s going to be very easy for people to say ‘It’s a black Mecca,’ and it is, but I just think that it’s the most American place. Everybody there is like ‘Yo, I got a verse.’ Everybody is trying to make something from nothing. I believe everybody has a situation, and I wanted to show real people in real situations… I wanted to make it a regional thing.”
Stay tuned for Atlanta to drop September 6th.
