FX released a teaser trailer for their new original series, “Atlanta,” created by and starring Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.  The show follows two cousins, with different views on art versus commerce, on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene; “Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks,” an ambitious college drop-out and his estranged cousin, who suddenly becomes a star.

“It’s the show I always wanted to see on television,” said Glover during an interview with FXM. “It’s easier to comment on what’s happening on TV. TV shows are like novels now, you have to invest in them.”
