Show sounds interesting. I would if it will be anything like The Wire, Power or Empire. Good to see a real show with actors coming about based on the streets of Atlanta. May be dope...

The message seems positive, at least. A show similar to The Wire set in Atlanta wouldn't give off a good image of the city. And if it's on CBS, expect it to be pretty tame.

If this show happens along with Donald Glover's "Atlanta," Atlanta is going to be pretty conspicuous on TV, in a way much better than Real Housewives or Love and Hip Hop.

The Wire presents a pretty rough image of Baltimore but I will have to say it is one of the best TV series I've ever seen.

I haven't seen the Wire but I have seen some rough areas of Baltimore. Wonder how accurate it is

Ive also been curious to see a street oriented show based in Atlanta or the south in general, a real Dick Wolfe type of drama, with writters and a script. Im surprised a certain airport/strip club fan is not all over this one......interesting indeed.

I hate to admit but I don't think I've seen any of those shows other than some bits and pieces of Real Housewives (who don't seem like any housewives I've ever known in Atlanta) and one episode of Walking Dead.
