Donald Glover's New Show 'Atlanta' Will Show People What It's Like To Be Black
Donald Glover flashes a smile as he speaks onstage at his Atlanta panel discussion held during the FX portion of the 2016 Summer TCA Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Tuesday (August 9) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 32-year-old actor-writer-executive producer was joined at the event by his co-stars Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz, as well as writer/executive producer Paul Simms and producer/director Hiro Murai.
“The thesis with this show was to show people what it’s like to be black, and you can’t write that down. You have to feel it,” Donald expressed (via IndieWire). “The tonal aspect was really important to me.”
Also in attendance at the 2016 Summer TCA Tour were Denis Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales for their show Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, as well as Natalie Brown, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel and Miguel Gomez for The Strain.
