Donald Glover Drew 'Atlanta' Season 2 Inspiration From 'Tiny Toons'

Atlanta 2017 Emmys Donald Glover Drew 'Atlanta' Season 2 Inspiration From 'Tiny Toons'

After naming it our favourite show of 2016, we learned early last year that the second season of Donald Glover's Atlanta would be delayed until this year.

So what is "robbin' season" actually referring to? "I think Season 2 will be affected by how people take in the food we're giving them, essentially". But Donald didn't want the success to change the series or force them to do the same thing in season two.

"Robbin' Season, for most of you that I guess don't know, is a time in Atlanta right before Christmastime and New Year's", the executive producer and writer explained to a ballroom full of (mostly) square TV critics on Friday. It's just kind of tense and desperate times. "You might get your package stolen from the front porch", he explained, adding that his neighbor got her auto stolen out of the driveway when they were shooting the second season. "Our characters are going through insane, desperate transitions so Robbin' Season is kind of a metaphor for all of our characters", he said.

As in Season 1, it sounds like Season 2 will continue to blend the absurd and the hilarious with tackling real issues, particularly things the writers have personally experienced.

"It's a really good show", Donald says as the room of critics erupts in laughter at his revelation.

Glover added, "That was our favorite as kids". "You laugh, but Tiny Toons Adventures was fantastic". According to Donald, that run of episodes of the animated series can be watched all together as a movie, but you can also watch them as individual episodes. "They would play them during the summer together, and we kind of took that idea - a whole story but being told in a bunch of different parts", he said, with his brother noting: "You enjoy them more when they're all together but you can also enjoy them in little bits".

"Even the title Robbin' Season is sort of setting up the audience to approach the show differently, and it's putting a different frame around the show", said director Hiro Murai. "We got to try a lot of weird experimental stuff".
