Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, just announced the release of his new series, Atlanta, in September. Along with writing the pilot, Glover will also star and executive produce the comedy series.
Watch the promo for Glover's FX show above, soundtracked by Tame Impala’s “New Person, Same Old Mistakes.” Many have noted the similarity between Atlanta’s trailer and The Pharcyde’s “Drop” video.
Back in October, FX picked up ten episodes of Atlanta. According to the promo's Youtube description, the show “revolves around two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene whose opposing views on art versus commerce, success and race will make their quest anything but easy.”
This new endeavor for Glover promises to be worthwhile. September can’t come soon enough!
