Donald Glover is sleepwalking his way through Atlanta.

EW has the exclusive first look at a new trailer for the long-gestating FX series, which Glover created, executive produces, and stars in. He plays Earn Marks, who navigates the titular city’s hip-hop scene along with his cousin Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry), as they aim to improve their lives and the lives of their families.

In the trailer, Earn wakes up in several different situations: He’s first awoken by a sweet little kid in a well-lit room. Then he’s shown arising groggily on a couch while his friends play video games. He pops up in a children’s bedroom with a blaring vacuum, then in a room surrounded by the aftermath of the night before. The various scenes are scored to “Sleepless (feat. Jezzabell Doran)” by Australian DJ Flume.

See the trailer above. Also starring Lakeith Lee Stanfield (Dope) and Zazie Beetz (Applesauce), Atlanta premieres Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
