Atlanta had one of the most amazing freshman runs of a TV series in recent memory. With all of the accolades and awards, you’d think it had been on the air for three seasons already.
Atlanta’s Season 2 Trailer Is Here
Atlanta has gotten so much acclaim and won awards that it’s easy to forget that they are only now coming into their second season.

Atlanta Is the Big Comedy Winner at Golden Globes
For the most part, the lumping of musicals with comedy gave way to the rightfully beloved La La Land sweeping up several awards at last night’s Golden Globes.
Still, Donald Glover’s dramedy set in the back-drop of Atlanta’s hip hop scene Atlanta took home Best Musical or Comedy TV series as well as a statue for Glover himself. In case you forgot, Atlanta is only on its freshman season.
FX has been really on a streak this year and is standing toe-to-toe with premium cable and streaming networks in critical acclaim. We’ll just have to see what the rest of the awards season brings.

Atlanta Had Some Fake Commercials That Really Blurred the Lines Between the Surreal and Real
Donald Glover said that he thought of his series Atlanta on FX as a sort of Twin Peaks with rappers.
Glover made good on the Twin Peaks part of that equation with these surreal, satirical, poignant fake ads that echo old Miss Cleo commercials and will haunt the rest of breakfast cereal commercials you watch from now on.

Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” Literally Gets Woke in New Promo
