Aziz Ansari’s new Netflix series has been given a November release date.
The show, which we first got wind of in April, will see the comedian reunite with Parks and Recreation executive producer Mike Schur. Indeed, the comedian has won over audiences worldwide with his supporting role as Tom Haverford in NBC’s sitcom – “Whenever Leslie asks me for the Latin names of any of our plants, I just give her the names of rappers. Those are some Diddies. Those are some Bone Thugs-N-Harmoniums, right here. Those Ludacrises are coming in great.” – but Aziz is no stranger to the VOD service either: he already has stand-up shows available to stream under Netflix’s original banner.
The series will be called “Master of None” and is based on the comedic viewpoints of Aziz. It follows the personal and professional life of Dev (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,” says the streaming giant.
Ansari stars in and created the series with Alan Yang; both serve as executive producers alongside Schur, Dave Becky (Louie) and David Miner (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). The series also stars H. Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu and is produced by Universal TV and 3 Arts for Netflix.
The show will premiere worldwide on Netflix on Friday 6th November.
