About that title change for FX's 'Atlanta'

Share

The first season of Atlanta was critically acclaimed upon its debut in September 2016, with creator Donald Glover picking up two Emmy awards for his work on the show previous year. They are keeping a tight lid on what's going on but the name of the show has been changed, which is open to interpretation: "Atlanta Robbin' Season".

The show is something of a passion project for Glover, who grew up in Atlanta's suburbs. "Basically a bunch of crime happens in the city during that time", Stephen said. You might get your package stolen from your door. "It's an intense and desperate time".

"Even the title Robbin' Season is sort of setting up the audience to approach the show differently, and it's putting a different frame around the show", said director Hiro Murai.

Glover plays Earn Marks, a manger who is trying to elevate his cousin Alfred's (Brian Tyree Henry) career.

The Emmy-winning co-creator and star revealed that he was largely inspired by the 1992 direct-to-video animated film, Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation, which followed the younger versions of the iconic Looney Tunes characters during their summer vacation from school.

FX officially announced that the acclaimed television series will be returning to the small screen on March 1st at 10 PM. Before he left to shoot the Lucasfilm blockbuster, however, Glover assembled his writers room and got the scripts for Atlanta Season 2 ready to go, so when he wrapped Solo last fall, he was ready to move right into production. We really tried to just devolve what television was.

"You enjoy them more when they're all together, but you also enjoy them in little bit", Donald added.

Stephen went on to explain that the episodes of Summer Vacation were broken up into several episodes, between 8 and 9, and that viewers could watch them all together as if they were a movie or separately in installments. "We had this idea like, yeah, a whole story, but being told in a bunch of little parts".
