Aziz Ansari's Netflix Show Has A Premiere Date But What Is 'Master Of None' Actually About?
For anyone in need of some serious comedic relief from the strain of the millennial struggle, here's some news that's bound to replace those tears of angst with major guffaws: Aziz Ansari's Netflix show has a premiere date. Master of None will hit the streaming site on Nov. 6, per a Netflix panel at TCA 2015. But what is Master of None about? After offering some pretty unique dating advice in his book , Modern Romance , it appears that the Parks and Recreation star's latest creative undertaking aims to ease millennial pangs in a misery-loves-company sort of way.
Here's how Netflix describes Master of None:
[The series] follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Aziz Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev’s story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.
So basically, Master of None chronicles the life of an indecisive guy who's struggling to get it together while trying to figure out this thing called life. Hilarity and embarrassingly relatable concept, FTW.
So, who will assist Ansari in making me, I mean, people feel better about failing spectacularly on their way to who knows where in this world? Well, Master of None happens to be the brainchild of Ansari and his Parks and Recreation co-star Alan Yang, who will also serve as executive producer, along with Ansari, Mike Schur (also from Parks and Recreation), Dave Becky (Louie) and David Miner (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). The show also stars Bob's Burgers' H. Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim from Tim and Eric, The Comeback's Lena Waithe, Noel Wells and Popular's Kelvin Yu. So yeah, it's got a pretty good set of people at the helm.
And if you weren't already convinced that Ansari totally deserves his own Netflix series, then understand that
1) I am giving you a mean side-eye at this very moment
2) The mere mention of pasta should be enough to convince you otherwise.
Seriously, Ansari's Netflix standup specials alone prove he's totally made for this.
