Created by and starring Donald Glover, 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. Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks is broke. His dead-end, commission-only job getting people to sign up for airline credit cards just isn’t cutting it, and his baby-momma (and roommate) Van needs him to fork over his share of the rent. When Earn learns that his cousin, Alfred (the aspiring rapper known as “Paper Boi”), has a new song that’s gaining traction on YouTube, he decides to try and convince the up-and-coming artist to let him be his manager, reconnecting with his long buried ambition and setting out to seize the life he imagined for himself.
Winner of two 2017 Golden Globe® Awards and starring Donald Glover (Community), Brian Tyree Henry (Vice Principals), Lakeith Stanfield (Selma), Zazie Beetz (Easy), and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (The Wire).
