TV Plus (South Africa) - - HOTLIST -

Earn Marks (Don­ald Glover) is stuck in a dead- end job that pays peanuts. But then the At­lanta (2016- cur­rent) lead char­ac­ter spots an op­por­tu­nity – to man­age his rap­per cousin.

Earn dropped out of 1

Prince­ton Univer­sity to be­come a mu­sic man­ager but his fam­ily still holds that against him.

He lives with his baby2

mama girl­friend Van (Zazie Beetz), who wants Earn to man up and get a job to pro­vide for them.

In episode 1 (6 Octo3

ber), Earn tried to talk his drugdealer cousin Al­fred – aka Pa­per Boi (Brian Tyree Henry) – into man­ag­ing his ca­reer but Al­fred had reser­va­tions.

Pa­per Boi only hired 4

Earn after he got his new song played on ra­dio – by pay­ing a friend at the stu­dio with his last money.

Pa­per Boi added to his 5

street cred and hype in episode 3 (20 Oc­to­ber) by do­ing a drug deal with a gang­ster who shot a client in front of him. NB! See more on p47
