Aziz Ansari’s Netflix Sitcom Gets a Name and Air Date


At The Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, Netflix finally disclosed the title and release date for Aziz Ansari’s anticipated sitcom, which was given a 10-episode order back in April.

The semi-autobiographical series is called Master of None, and follows a New York-based, 30-year old actor (named Dev, played by Ansari), who, according to a press release, “has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life.” The description continues:

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.

The series, which was created by Ansari and Parks and Recreation writer Alan Yang, is set to premiere Friday, November 6 on Netflix. Supporting cast members include Bob’s Burgers’ H. Jon Benjamin, Lena Waithe, Eric Wareheim, Noël Wells, and Kelvin Yu.
