4 new TV shows to get excited about this month

Atlanta

Premiere: September 6th

Creator:Donald Glover

Starring: Donald Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Keith Stanfield Bret. E. Benson, Carra Greer

Described as “Twin Peaks but with rappers” (which immediately sold me on this) this FX original series is a refreshing change of pace from remakes and adaptations. About Earn Marks (Donald Glover) a music manager who sets out to try and get his cousin’s rap career off the ground.
Hailed as a comedy like nothing we have on TV at this moment that manages to capture a full range of well-written characters and drama with levity and genius.

This Is Us

Premiere: September 20th

Creator: Dan Fogelman

Starring: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown

This NBC series looks set to be a weekly weepy with an ensemble of characters tied together by their shared birthday. A dramedy about life and getting through it with love, life and family. A married couple are expecting triplets, a man reconnects with his bio-father and a TV star grows bored with his empty life.
Not much is known about the all encompassing story at the moment but expect heart warming/breaking pieces every week
