‘American Horror Story’ Season 6 Sets September FX Premiere With ‘Atlanta’
Just when you thought FX might finally unveil of American Horror Story Season 6, the curtain stops halfway. We at least know when the mysterious sixth season will premiere, while the network also sets dates for Donald Glover’s Atlanta and Pamela Adlon’s Better Things.
Per the network’s official announcement, ex-Community star Glover will kick off FX’s fall season with the September 6 Atlanta premiere followed two days later by Pamela Adlon and Louis C.K.’s Better Things on Thursday September 8. Meanwhile, American Horror Story Season 6 will stage its first September premiere, to arrive on Wednesday, September 14.
Of course, given FX curiously refuses to divulge any Season 6 details, here are synopses for Atlanta:
In Atlanta, two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. “Earn Marks” (Donald Glover) is a young manager trying to get his cousin’s career off the ground. “Alfred Marks” (Brian Tyree Henry) is a new hot rapper trying to understand the line between real life and street life. “Darius” (Lakeith Lee Stanfield) is Alfred’s right-hand man and visionary. “Vanessa” (Zazie Beetz) is Earn’s best friend and the mother of Earn’s daughter. Glover serves as Executive Producer, along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment.
And Better Things:
Better Things centers on Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single, working actor with no filter raising her three daughters, Max (Mikey Madison), Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward) in Los Angeles. She’s mom, dad, referee and the cops. Sam also watches out for her mother, Phil (Celia Imrie), an English expatriate, who lives across the street. Sam is flawed and fierce with her love for her daughters, and her own mother, as well. Sometimes, heaping the love on when she feels guilty. Sam’s just trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in a while. Adlon serves as Executive Producer alongside Louis C.K., Blair Breard, Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment.
While we wait, check out the teasers below and stay tuned for the latest on American Horror Story Season 6, presumably five minutes before the September premiere.
