‘Master of None’ Trailer Shows First Look at Aziz Ansari’s Netflix Series

By October 22, 2015

Netflix seems to be continually adding more variety to its already incredibly diverse line-up of original programming, so much so, that it seems like every month features the premiere of a new, can’t miss project from the streaming service. While next month will involve most viewers impatiently waiting for the premiere of Marvel and Netflix’s Jessica Jones, the platform will also be launching the new original series from Parks and Recreation‘s Aziz Ansari called Master of None.

Set in New York City, the series will feature Ansari navigating through difficult topics like love, racism, sexism, and surviving in such a self-aware world where a moment can go from touching to awkward in the blink of an eye. Much like Louis C.K.’s Louie, the series looks like it’ll be addressing some incredibly intimate and complex emotions, while always wearing a smirk and comedic tone throughout.

The first official trailer for the Netflix original series has premiered online earlier today and for those of you there hoping for a Tom Haverford Original Series, you might be a little disappointed. Check it out below:

The series looks melancholy, intimate, and fun in an incredibly interesting way. Unlike most other comedies on TV right now, the series doesn’t have any zany premise or hook, and it looks like that will be working to the its advantage more than anything else. It does look to be in the same vain as the previously mentioned Louie, both in aesthetic and tone, but considering just how damn good the former is, that’s not necessarily a bad thing depending on how well Master of None ends up living up to its promise.

As a fan of Ansari’s comedy, this looks like something he’s always been destined to make. While his persona isn’t necessarily for everybody, for those who can take enjoyment out of his thoughts and language, this looks like it’ll be worth their time, and an interesting new addition to Netflix’s comedy lineup, which also premiered the absurdly enjoyable Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt earlier this year as well.

Master of None will premiere on Netflix on November 6th.
