Aziz Ansari‘s new Netflix series appears to be one extended vehicle of “going there,” comedy-wise — at least based on its new full-length trailer — but that doesn’t mean the show is a one-trick pony. After all, it has a strong TV pedigree beyond its star and platform.
“Master of None,” which drops on Nov. 6, follows the personal and professional lives 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. Dev’s story takes him through the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.
In addition to his leading man role, Ansari writes and directs the 10-episode Netflix original comedy series, which is loosely based on his own life experiences.
The show was created by Ansari and Alan Yang, who also executive produce alongside Michael Schur, Dave Becky and David Miner.
“Master of None” co-stars Noel Wells, H. Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim and Ravi Patel, among others.
Watch the trailer above, which features Dev suffering the uncomfortable consequences of breaking a condom. Later, he offends his new girlfriend’s sweet, old grandma.
