The Idea behind FX’s ‘Atlanta’ Was “‘Twin Peaks’ For Rappers” [Watch]

Donald Glover’s new FX series premieres next month and maybe you’ve seen one of those trippy teaser trailers that features the backward-forward walking. Or is it forward-backward walking? Whatever you want to call it, you couple that cool, seldom-used effect with the music of Tame Impala and my ears perk up. So, bravo to the person that came up with that idea. You have my attention.

Something else that’s attention-grabbing is the way that Donald Glover described the show when he was on with Jimmy Fallon last night. “I want to make Twin Peaks, but for rappers.”

Hmmmm…. Sounds like it’s definitely worth a viewing or two.
