on September 07, 2016, 11:20am

Atlanta is the new single-camera, semi-autobiographical comedy from actor-rapper Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino. The series premiere aired on FX Tuesday night, and is now streaming in full via YouTube. Watch it above.

In Atlanta, Glover plays Earnest “Earn” Marks, a Princeton dropout who returns home to Atlanta to manage the fledgling rap career of his cousin, Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles (played by Brian Tyree Henry).

“The thesis with the show was kind of to show people how it felt to be black,” Glover explained during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour last month. “I always want people to be scared because that’s kind of how it feels to be black.”

Watch the trailer for Atlanta below. The first season spans 10 episodes and airs weekly on FX.
