Donald Glover’s ‘Atlanta’ on FX

drops a half-dozen new teasers

5:09 PMOne is a total of 90 seconds and the other is 165 seconds. In the past two days, we’ve been blessed with two teaser releases from a couple of very anticipated television series. First up is Donald Glover’s Atlanta, set to debut on FX on Sept. 9. The second is Netflix’s Luke Cage, which drops on Sept. 20.

We’ll start with Glover’s opus, first. The series was greenlighted after his second studio album Because The Internet received a nod for best rap album at the 2015 Grammy Awards. After writing for 30 Rock, and appearing in The Martian following his ascent to a household name on NBC’s Community, things came together.

“I mean, it’s not a coincidence I got my pilot right after I got a Grammy nomination,” Glover told Grantland last year. “You think the people were like, ‘Wait, what? He got a Grammy, too?’ It’s harder to turn down a Grammy guy who also writes. I know I’m in a unique position. So I take that very seriously. That’s the thing, it isn’t for naught.”

With that backdrop, along with his penchant for drawing vastly different reactions out of people for his wide array of skills, this show will likely be highly anticipated among a certain creative class. Aside from rapping, acting and stand-up comedy, he’ll occasionally drop a randomly glorious R&B cover or release an eerily esoteric short film that feels like it could be completely autobiographical or not at all.

That said, this new show looks like something in-between that promises to fit the network’s largely darker drama tone. On Monday, six new 15-second trailers named Close Calls, Curry, Deja Vu, Alive, Hard Day and Work released. Earlier this summer, the network had released four other trailers, titled Walk, Flyers, Porch and Wake Up. Glover’s series looks gritty, while somewhat melodic and ultimately funny. Directed by Hiro Murai, Glover plays an up-and-coming rapper. That song you hear is Tame Impala’s New Person, Same Old Mistakes.

So far, the series has been picked up for 10 episodes.
