The award-winning US series Atlanta is coming to SBS Viceland and SBS On Demand from Tuesday February 28.
The series will launch with the first two episodes and then continue weekly in double episodes, with the entire series also available on SBS On Demand.
Created, co-written, and produced by musician and actor Donald Glover (also known by stage name Childish Gambino), Atlanta follows the lives of Earn Marks (played by Glover), a young Princeton dropout with a two-year-old daughter, and his rapper cousin Alfred “Paper Boi” Miles (Brian Tyree Henry). Earn becomes Alfred’s manager as they attempt to break into Atlanta’s music industry and improve their lives and that of their families.
SBS Viceland channel manager John Beohm said: “SBS Viceland continues to bring younger audiences unique global and local programming that explores new cultures and ideas – Atlanta is a great example of this, exploring a range of social issues in a witty and humorous way.”
Earlier this year, Atlanta featured at the Golden Globe Awards, winning Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, and Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Donald Glover also won Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Television Awards.
