Aziz Ansari Tackles Race and Relationships in Trailer for ‘Master of None’


Netflix has released the trailer for Aziz Ansari’s upcoming, semi-autobiographical series, Master of None.

Ansari stars as “Dev,” a thirty-year-old actor trying to figure his life out in New York City. The trailer covers both Dev’s romantic (he feels pressured to settle down but is overly selective: “Whoever you’re dating now at this age, it could be who you end up with—it’s a big decision”) and professional (he auditions for roles but is relegated to typecasting) lives, and the way the latter is impacted by casual racism.

Other cast members include: H. Jon Benjamin (Bob’s Burgers; Archer); Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), Lena Waithe (The Comeback); Noël Wells (Saturday Night Live); and Kelvin Yu (writer for Bob’s Burgers). Claire Danes and Noah Emmerich will also make guest appearances.

Ansari’s show will be his third collaboration with Netflix — the first two being standup specials (2013’s Buried Alive; and Aziz Ansari: Live at Madison Square Garden from earlier this year).

Master of None will premiere on Netflix on November 6, 2015.
