Watch Donald Glover’s Full FX ‘Atlanta’ Premiere Online
However long it’s taken to finally make the airwaves, the FX Donald Glover rap dramedy Atlanta has been well worth the wait. You don’t need our word for it, though, as FX has placed the full “Twin Peaks for rappers” premiere online after this week’s premiere.
Where FX debuted Atlanta this past Tuesday with a first two episodes, the entire surreal first half is available to watch on YouTube. The 10-episode series will air regular installments on Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
In the meantime, so reads 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.
The long-developing series is easily one of the hottest new shows to debut this fall, but take a look for yourself, watch the trailer below, and stay tuned for the latest.
