Watch Episode One Of Donald Glover's 'Atlanta' TV Show

Donald Glover Atlanta Episode One

Donald Glover’s exciting series, Atlanta, is here! Thanks to FX, the show is available to stream in its entirety on Youtube below. 

The dual threat entertainer is both an award winning actor/writer and Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist, so we couldn’t ask for a better fit on a show based on rappers in Atlanta. The comedy series follows Glover (Earnest aka Earn Marks) who works as his cousin's manager for his rap career as Paper Boi.

His Childish Gambino rap alias gives him the perfect insight for the cinematically-shot series that establishes a certain aesthetic we’ve seen in his multiple teasers and trailer for the show. In addition, Childish Gambino just debuted a new album this past weekend (Sept. 2-4) during a bizarre camping event titled "PHAROS", which you can get an inside look here. Check out the first episode below. Enjoy!

Watch Full Trailer For Donald Glover’s ‘Atlanta’ Television Show

Atlanta Trailer

Following multiple short teasers for Donald Glover’s upcoming Atlanta FX show, a full-length trailer has arrived. This new promo video titled “Inhale Atlanta” offers us the first real glimpse of what we can expect from the show’s vibe and tone. 

Donald Glover has perviously stated he’d like Atlanta to be like “Twin Peaks with rappers.” For those unfamiliar, Twin Peaks was a 90’s murder mystery well known for its overall aethetic cinematic approach and has amassed a cult following. If this latest promo for Atlanta is any indication for what we might expect from the series, we’re in for a treat. The video is artsy and showcases movie-quality cinematography as we get a closer view of Atlanta’s landscape over the course of the nearly four minute trailer that even includes a short cameo from Migos.

Atlanta follows the story of Earnest “Earn” Marks (Glover) and his rapper cousin Alfred as they navigate the Atlanta music scene. While the show is a comedy at heart, it brings perspective on racial identity as Glover took an unorthodox route of hiring an all black writing room. "The thesis with the show was kind of to show people how it felt to be black,” says Glover. “The No. 1 thing we kept coming back to is that it needs to be funny first and foremost. I never wanted this shit to be important.” 

Glover has one of the biggest weeks of his career ahead of him with Atlanta debuting on 9/6 in addition to his Childish Gambino ‘Pharos’ shows in Joshua Tree on Sep 2-4, where he plans on debuting his latest album.
