The first teaser for Atlanta aired in April 2016 during the finale of FX's The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

The clip features Earn, Alfred and Darius watching the episode as it aired on television, breaking the fourth wall. In the clip, Darius is wondering why the series ended with the O.J’s acquittal. Earn tells him that the series is based on a true story, to which Darius replies, "Is that why cops are mad? 'Cause I’d be mad as hell."

Reverse TV spots Edit

FX aired a series of promotional spots, featuring the main characters, during the summer leading up to the premiere. Filmed on location in Atlanta, the spots convey the show's surrealist atmosphere by playing the footage of the main actors forward while the world around them plays in the reversed. The footage then starts playing correctly inside the "Atlanta" text.

The song "New Person, Same Old Mistakes" by Tame Impala is the soundtrack for each TV spot.

Walk Edit
