Over 300 local media and influencers packed the venue to get a sneak peak of the much-buzzed about show. John Solberg, EVP of communications a FX Networks, welcomed the guests and introduced the two 25-min episodes.
A Q&A moderated by “The Breakfast Club” host Angela Yee and featuring “ATLANTA” cast members Donald Glover (also the show’s creator, executive producer, writer, director and executive music producer), Brian Tyree Henry and Zazie Beetz immediately followed the screening. Additional attendees included Elle Varner, rapper Consequence, Chef Roble, Cipha Sounds and more.
