List RulesVote up the films and series that give you Atlanta vibes.

Fans of Donald Glover were gifted with the actor's extraordinary abilities when he strolled onto the set of FX's Atlanta when the series premiered in 2016. Prior to the new drama show, much of Glover's work had been rooted in his performance on Community and as the rapper Childish Gambino. Atlanta developed into a series involving both comedy and drama as two cousins attempt to maneuver through the Atlanta rap scene, and its success is rooted in Glover's skills as an actor, producer, director, and writer.

If you're looking for something to watch after binging all of Atlanta's available episodes, there are numerous movies and TV shows like Atlanta you can check out. Similar fare like HBO's Entourage takes a comedy/drama look at the lives of a developing Hollywood actor and his small group of friends in a manner similar to Atlanta, while films like Magic Mike offer a similar experience in the world of male stripping. Of course, you'll find plenty of other shows and movies like Atlanta, no matter your preference.
