Donald Glover’s Golden Globe-winning Atlanta has got him huge critical acclaim, on both sides of the pond. He plays Princeton dropout and full-time floater Earn during his daily life in Atlanta, Georgia – along with his rapper cousin Paper Boi and his friend, philosopher-of-sorts Darius (“I like Flo Rida. Moms need rap too”). It’s smart, sharp and utterly mesmerising. Season 1 was shown on FOX last year – set your WishList™ now for season 2, coming next year.

Catch it ahead of the second series, coming to ITV this summer.
