Donald Glover first came to us under the stage name “Childish Gambino,” as a rapper. He’s found success on the stage, on the big screen, the silver screen, and even as the inspiration for Miles Morales. But now he’s created and is starring in his own show, Atlanta. FX is usually pretty solid with scripted shows, so it should be a good watch.
Atlanta 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.
- Donald Glover – Earnest “Earn” Marks
