Last night, FX premiered Atlanta, the long-awaited new series created by and starring Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino. After its airing, FX's YouTube account posted the first episode of the show, which Glover has described as "Twin Peaks with rappers." Watch above if you're in the U.S. — it's geoblocked in Canada and the U.K.


During a summer press tour, Glover discussed his motivations behind creating Atlanta. "The thesis with the show was kind of to show people how it felt to be black... It's very easy for white people to know [about black culture] because there's Vine," he said. "[The] Nay Nay [dance] came out and then your grandma's doing it two days later."
