While writing for 30 Rock, Glover made a few cameos on the show, proving his magnetic stage presence and natural comedic timing. Therefore, it was no surprise when Glover was cast in NBC’s new sitcom Community, which premiered in 2009. Community received positive reviews from critics, as did Glover’s wackily endearing performance. To this day I quote-sing “Troy and Abed in the Morning!” For real, Glover’s chemistry with Danny Pudi is unreal.
In 2016, Glover premiered his new series, Atlanta, on FX which was met with critical acclaim. Glover is a vital creator in the series. In addition to starring in it, he also writes, directs, and produces. Atlanta has received numerous award nominations, like the Primetime Emmys, the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild. In 2017, Atlanta won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series for a Musical or a Comedy. Additionally, Glover’s performance in the series won him a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series for a Musical or Comedy and a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
