Donald Glover’s FX ‘Atlanta’ Finally Revealed in First Full Trailer
Even as former Community star Donald Glover graced FX with his presence at the TCA press tour panel, most Atlanta promos have cryptically placed the cast in a backwards scenario. At long last, Ernest “Earn” Marks steps forth with a formal trailer for the Twin Peaks-style series, making Donald Glover a family man.
Following a few teasers in recent weeks, FX released the first official trailer footage of the new series, now set for a September 6 premiere. In it, we get a sense of Glover’s support cast, as well the weird Georgia vibe the series seems to capture.
In the meantime, here’s the synopsis for Atlanta:
In Atlanta, two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. “Earn Marks” (Donald Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground. “Alfred Marks” (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. “Darius” (Lakeith Lee Stanfield) is Alfred’s right-hand man and visionary. “Vanessa” (Zazie Beetz) is Earn’s best friend and the mother of Earn’s daughter. Glover serves as Executive Producer, along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment.
While we wait, teasers below and stay tuned for the latest on Atlanta, hitting this September on FX.
