  New TV Show Coming Soon To FX  
BHR Hollywood Reports........ Donald Glover is currently on a press tour to promote his anticipated FX series "Atlanta," which is set to premiere next month. During a press conference, he spoke in depth about the show and his decision to leave the popular NBC show "Community."

“The thesis with ['Atlanta'] was kind of to show people how it felt to be black," he said. "What was important to me was that this show was personal and had a specific take, because that’s all you can really ask for from a show nowadays, is having a specific point of view on something.”

According to reports, Glover told reporters that he wanted the show to "to show people how it felt to be black."

"What was important to me" he said, "was that this show was personal and had a specific take, because that's all you can really ask for from a show nowadays, is having a specific point of view on something."

While FX is promoting the show as a comedy, the actor and executive producers say that the series has a dark tone. "You can't really write that down. You kind of have to feel it, so the tonal aspect was really important to me."

Glover added that when it comes to tackling serious subjects on the show, "I always want people to be scared, because that’s kind of how it feels to be black," adding that how black comedians are portrayed in Hollywood has recently changed thanks in part to social media. And, as for his character, despite his success as a rapper, Glover won't be playing one on screen.

"That would be weird, that would be so weird. I wouldn’t have enjoyed that. It's possible to do that but then … that makes it harder for me to do music.

 It just clouds a lot of things. There's a level of magic realism and suspended disbelief that you need for all genres, and it's important for me as an artist to keep those all in tact."
