Last night, FX hosted the official premiere event for their new original comedy series “ATLANTA.” The swanky affair was held at the Georgia Aquarium, where hundreds turned out to preview the highly-anticipated show.

“ATLANTA” cast members Donald Glover (also the show’s creator, executive producer, writer, director and executive music producer), Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz were in attendance along with executive producers Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle and director Hiro Murai. Additional attendees included “ATLANTA” cast members Freddie Kuguru, Candace B. Harris and Chris Greene; Jermaine Dupri, John Singleton, Kawan Prather, Chaka Zulu, Karlie Redd (“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”), Amber Nash (“Archer”), Pastor Troy, Scotty ATL, Adreian Payne (Minnesota Timberwolves), Steve Glover, Egypt Sherrod, DJ Fadelf, DJ Irie, Sean Mac, Freestyle Steve, DJ Dimepiece, DJ Supastar, DJ Skillz, DJ Big Greg and many more.

The evening began with a cocktail reception followed by a screening and a lavish after-party featuring music by producer Metro Boomin and DJ London Thomas.

Filmed on location in Atlanta, “ATLANTA” chronicles the lives of two cousins who must work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. And it’s not reality!

Great show. True to Atlanta.

“ATLANTA” premieres September 6 at 10/9c on FX. Check out the pics below.

Donald Golver (who's shedding the name of Childish Gambino) is the show’s creator, executive producer, writer, director and executive music producer. Very well written.
